When a child or young person is taken into care, they need a safe and supportive place to stay. Foster care is often the preferred choice for such children and young people. Foster Care means a child lives with a different family who aims to provide them with the care and support by offering a safe, secure and nurturing home.

How we support our carers

Being a foster carer is one of the most challenging yet most rewarding things you’ll ever do. It truly is a life-changing experience – not just for you and your family, but for the children you help too.

At Key Assets, you will never be alone in facing those challenges and celebrating the rewards. The support we offer will guide you through the ups and downs of fostering.

Can I foster?

Key Assets is a diverse and welcoming fostering agency, so we open our foster carer applications to a wide range of people.

Your marital status, race, culture, sexual orientation, home ownership status and income don’t exclude you from applying for fostering. In fact, we believe the diversity of the foster carers we work with is positive when finding the best possible family for a foster child.
