What Ofsted say

“The agency ensures that each child and all carers are very well known by all the staff. This insight underpins the holistic and excellent support that children receive not only from their carers but also from the wider agency.”

Effectiveness of leaders and managers

“Leaders and managers are committed and passionate about improving the experiences and outcomes for children. Children are very much at the heart of the agency’s activities. The manager understands the carers and children extremely well and is driven to ensure that practice continues to be of a very high standard.”

What our foster carers say

Hear what some of our amazing foster carers have to say about being part of the Safehouses Fostering family.

"Just one recent example is the support Safehouses have given regarding family contact arrangements for one of our foster children. Safehouses sorted out somewhere nice to meet, convenient for the parents, and a Safehouses social worker provided supervision for the contact meetings."

Paul & Debbie

"We had talked about fostering for years but we waited until out our youngest child had grown up. The Out of Hours service is priceless when you first start. You ring up and you speak to someone you know, not just a voice on the phone."
