About Us

A company run by proven experts, that trains and supervises the very best quality foster families in providing a safe, therapeutic environment in which children and young people can feel safe and flourish in their social, emotional and educational development.

How Can Small Be Big?

We understand that many foster families prefer to be part of a smaller organisation, where everyone is on first-name terms and all members of the foster family receive personal recognition and service.

As a team we wanted to develop a special company where we could all enjoy being part of something small too; where we have the time to appreciate individuals and keep in close touch with the real work of caring for children.

Small means working together, it doesn’t mean that we can’t have big ideas or achieve big things – the Flourish Fostering team all have a strong track record in making meaningful things happen.

Small is the new big in fostering.

‘It takes a village to raise a child’.

African proverb

An old African proverb states that ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. At Flourish Fostering we recognise the complex skills that exist within successful fostering families. Bringing a symbolic ‘community’, or ‘village’ of successful fostering families and staff together can create a powerfully potent environment for nurturing and raising the most socially and emotionally deprived children. This is why Flourish Fostering has created a Founders Group, made up of 30 therapeutically experienced and successful fostering families and staff members to symbolise that ‘community’ or ‘village’ in which other families and staff members can draw upon this pooled wealth of experience in nurturing children towards recovery. The meaning being that an entire community must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment.

Flourish Fostering is a niche therapeutic provider of care for children and young people who cannot live with their own families for all kinds of reasons. Many of those children have been exposed to extraordinary experiences that children should never have to live through. Consequently the child’s trust in adults has usually been crushed and so they need people who can take their time in learning to understand what they have been through and the impact of that on a child’s emotional wellbeing.

Foster With Us

We all have more potential than is ever realised, and the unique training package for Foster parents with Flourish is designed to tap into that potential. Foster parents are trained to a high standard so that they can understand the emotional and behavioural world of the children in their care and know how to intervene. Research has shown that therapeutic training of the kind offered by Flourish helps foster parents to feel competent and equal with other professionals in the team round the child.
