Become a Foster Parent with By the Bridge

Join a Leading UK Fostering Agency

We’re By the Bridge, an independent fostering organisation. We find and train Foster Parents to really make a difference to a child and ensure young people in care get a better chance in life.


Originally founded by Foster Parents in 2002 By the Bridge now has offices situated at carefully selected locations across the UK. 


For over 15+ years we have been providing a unique and leading therapeutic fostering approach. The teams at By the Bridge are made up of brilliant people, Foster Parents and staff alike. Many of our staff team have fostered too, so we really know what it’s like.


By the Bridge Foster Parents come from all walks of life and bring a wide range of experience to caring for children from all types of backgrounds.


Children and young people are at the very heart of everything that we do, but we never forget that Foster Parents must be well cared for and valued by us too, if they are to do their very best work
