Mulberry Foster Care

About Us

Mulberry Foster Care was created by Social Workers with the aim of truly making a difference in the lives of young people. As an agency we have developed and are now able to offer a truly therapeutic fostering service.

In 2022 we were delighted to have been deemed to be Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted but have continued to expand our therapeutic offerings and ensure that the family feel of being a Mulberry Foster Carer remains.

Why Mulberry Foster Care?

  • Commitment to Excellence

    We are proud to be an Ofsted-rated Outstanding agency, recognised for our exceptional standards of care and commitment to continuous improvement.

  • Therapeutic Approach

    As a therapeutic fostering agency, we prioritise the emotional well-being and development of every child in our care. Through access to in-house Systemic Family Therapy, play therapy, equine therapy, adventure plus, mentoring, and other specialised services, we provide comprehensive support tailored to meet the unique needs of each child.

  • Generous Allowances

    We understand that fostering is a significant commitment, which is why we offer generous allowances to our foster carers. These allowances are designed to cover the cost of caring for a child, including food, clothing, and other essentials, ensuring that our foster families can provide a high standard of care without financial strain.

  • Supportive Community

    When you join Mulberry Foster Care, you become part of a supportive and inclusive community of foster carers, staff, and professionals dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of children and families.

  • Personalized Training and Development

    We offer ongoing training, learning, and development opportunities to equip our foster carers with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to succeed in their role and make a lasting impact on the lives of children.

  • Transparent Communication

    We believe in open and transparent communication, ensuring that our foster carers feel valued, respected, and supported every step of the way. Our dedicated team is always available to provide guidance, assistance, and advocacy whenever needed.

  • In-depth Matching Process

    Once you are approved as a Foster Carer, the work will begin in terms of finding a child to join you. As an agency, we place no pressure on our carers to accept a placement as it has to be right for everyone in order for the placement to be successful. Potential matches are filtered by our team and you are only presented with placements we think could work for you. This process has proven to minimise placement breakdowns.

  • Fulfilling Rewards

    Fostering with Mulberry Foster Care is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. By opening your heart and home to a child in need, you have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in their life, providing them with love, stability, and hope for the future.
