About Us

We are an independent foster care charity providing safe and nurturing homes for children and young people. We aspire not to be the biggest provider but one of the best.

Our Board meets six times a year and each session equates to two hours of preparation and a two-hour meeting. You can join these meetings virtually if you prefer.

There are opportunities for Board members to attend training and to become more involved with the work of the Trust.

Our Mission

We make home to nurture children and young peoples’ potential.
