Unlike some agencies, Team Fostering is a not-for-profit, ethical and privately run fostering agency that invests all funds into foster carers and children, with no shareholders to pay out to. We're excited to be growing our West Yorkshire fostering service and already have fantastic carers that report to our local offices.
How is our money spent? At Team Fostering 60% of our income is paid directly to foster carers. 24% pays for support and training of Foster Carers and 14% goes on the costs of running the agency to our own high standards by providing the unique services that we do. A final 2% is retained to reinvest in cost savings and ensure agency security. Learn more about what it means to operate as a not-for-profit agency by clicking here.
If you live in in the region, you could offer a range of fostering types in order to meet the needs of children and young people placed in foster care:
Fostering can be challenging but it is extremely rewarding, and we ensure that all of our foster carers receive the best support, among other benefits to help them through their journey. You can read about our support here.
