Become a Foster Parent with By the Bridge

  • About Us Banner

We are 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, and 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


We're rated 'Outstanding' in all 5 areas of Ofsted and that's very important to us. What it means is that we provide you and the children within our care the exceptional level of service you deserve when fostering.

Fostering Offices

 Testimonial Image

Our local offices and countryside locations are carefully chosen and decorated with bright colours, pictures and plants. So everyone experiences a sense of care, value and ‘a homely’ feel when they come to work or visit. We aim to create an environment where people feel valued and can grow, develop and achieve their goals.
