The Adoption Matters family is growing…
We are excited to share the news that Adoption Matters is developing a new independent, not-for-profit, fostering service in the North West.
Adoption Matters has been researching expanding into the foster care market for over two years. As you will know, the fostering sector is experiencing a crisis never seen before. As a children’s charity and the ONLY adoption service in the UK rated Ofsted Outstanding 5 times in a row, with our decades of expertise in providing excellent services to children in care, we want to step forward and make a difference.
We aim to offer a not-for-profit fostering service to the local authorities across the North West, providing cost-effective and high-quality foster care households.
We strongly believe in re-investing in our services to offer a high-quality foster care service, with multi-disciplinary, therapeutic support to children and young people who need it most.
A world in which every child feels safe and supported by nurturing families who encourage and enable them to reach their full potential. Our vision is to have robust and outstanding adoption and fostering services running in parallel which impact positively on outcomes for children.
As a charitable organisation, we feel strongly that supporting children’s basic need for security and care should not be a profit-making activity.
What does this mean for Adoption Matters?
Nothing will change. We will continue to recruit adoptive families, place children, offer support to adopted adults and birth families and offer therapy and support services through our Centre for Adoption Support and Therapy Service.
We aim to launch our new fostering service in late 2023/early 2024 as Foster Care Matters.
