A reliable and experienced Local Authority partner

We’re a team committed to the principle that children come first, and this is embedded into all that we do.  

What makes us different?


“Anchor Foster Care is a very good agency which prioritises the needs of children.”

I am very pleased with the support offered by Anchor Fostering Agency. Anchor liaises well with professional and attends all meetings. My view is that Anchor Foster Care is a very good agency which prioritises the needs of children.

A child-centred approach  

As a family run, independent, not-for-profit independent fostering agency we are committed to offering a child-centred fostering service with a family focus.  

We know that the most positive experiences come from the resilience and care of our foster parents. That’s why we invest so heavily in them and support them 24/7. As an expert in this area, we already work closely with several Local Authorities across the UK.

Statement of purpose

What can you expect from working with us? 

We are highly-experienced in working with Local Authorities and the associated expertise this requires.  

Our foster parents receive extensive training at the assessment stage and throughout their time with us, and always 24/7 support on 

We understand the relentlessness there is right now for child placements and we have a proven track record for working with LAs to deliver fast, professional services without ever compromising on care.  


Operating across the UK


“We pride ourselves on careful matching and good placement planning.”

If there are any signs of a possible placement breakdown, our Supervising Social Workers liaise with local authority social workers to arrange a ‘Placement Stability’ meeting to put immediate measures in place, to support and save the placement. This pro-active approach minimises the negative effect of placement breakdowns all round.
