Futures for Children's  Mission Statement


Futures for Children provides, through a flexible, caring and imaginative foster care service, an opportunity for all our children and young people to become valued members of tomorrow’s society.

Looked after children represent the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community. At Futures for Children it is our objective to provide support and conditions in which these most vulnerable young people can thrive and achieve a positive outcome from their time spent in foster care. There is much work to be done to redress the disadvantages these children have experienced and little time to do this before they become independent young adults. For many children a positive outcome may be a return to their parents or extended family. Maintaining contact and working with genuine respect for the child’s family is crucial for keeping these options available. Other children may succeed best in long term alternative families including permanent foster care placements.

Futures for Children can provide a wide range of foster care placements and professional support services providing specific packages of care to meet the needs of individual children and young people. These services are delivered by qualified and experienced social work staff and foster carers who are valued as full members of our professional team.

Futures for Children

As an existing foster carer it is important that you work with a company that is able to fully support both the children and foster carers. A lot of carers from Local Authorities and other Agencies come to us and feel that there could be more done for themselves and the looked after children.
