Find a Fostering agency in your local area

By the Bridge is an independent Fostering agency that carefully matches children, who can’t live at home for a time, with local Foster Parents throughout England.  We work with Foster families across the North West, Yorkshire, the Midlands, Essex, Thames Valley, Norfolk, Kent and Sussex.


We follow a Therapeutic Parenting approach which helps Foster Parents better understand and support children. Our unique training and support package is delivered via a mix of in-person and online training as well as group and one-to-one supervision and networking events to ensure that all our Foster Parents, new and experienced, feel welcome, valued and supported wherever you are based.


 “…the training and support is great and it feels like we are part of a big family.”

- Katie & Tom, By the Bridge Foster Parents


Our children come from all over England and from all walks of life, so we welcome Foster Parents from all walks of life too. No matter where you’re located or what your life experiences, if you have an open attitude to welcome a child into your home and a spare bedroom for a child to call their own, we’d like to hear from you.
