We understand the challenges presented by sibling groups and have tailored our support and service accordingly.We are driven by children’s needs, which means we take time with every child to tackle the problems he/she faces while encouraging positive behaviour as well as offering support with education, we are proud of our standards and the support and training that we provide to our foster carers.

When sibling groups are placed in foster care it can become a challenge for the Local Authority to keep them together. However, it is very important to keep the children together given their potential relationships with each other, the support they may provide each other and their shared experiences.
We are seeing an increasing need for foster homes for sibling groups and also seeing a greater number of younger children being referred to us. “Younger” includes babies and under fives.
