More than a fostering agency team

We’re a group of people all dedicated to supporting foster parents and achieving great things for children.  

Committed to improving the outcomes of young people


“I felt like part of the family”

“Anchor is truly family orientated, and I felt like part of the family when I worked there. I looked forward to going to work as I had good relations with my colleagues, particularly in the social work team. I had to relocate away to support family members but, if Anchor opened up an office in my new area, I’d definitely look at coming back!”

It’s more than a job. We care.

Anchor’s fostering team is made-up of a diverse range of dedicated professionals, each experienced and highly skilled in working with vulnerable children.  

Just like the support we offer to our foster parents, our approach to team and culture is one that centres around nurturing, growth and support. This helps us build on what we’re doing every day and ensures we’re always striving for excellence.  

All our social workers are SWE registered and we subscribe to their high standards of practice.



From the Anchor Family


"It's not just about the learning, it's the support and love."

I loved working at Anchor. It’s not just about the learning it’s the support and the love. You can be yourself and everyone is treated equally. Every single person at Anchor is amazing. If every agency had the same culture as Anchor Foster Care does social work would be an amazing career. Any student would be lucky to come to Anchor and get to work with all the amazing people.


"Anchor's approach, for me, is what it's all about."

When I started working for Anchor, it was like a breath of fresh air. It was clear they really cared about providing safety, stability and hope for all children placed with our foster parents. Matching is an absolute priority for Anchor, and we always prioritise the child/s needs and the parent/s skillset, and for me, this is what fostering is really about.


“I’ve had a fabulous twelve years working for Anchor.”

I’ve had a fabulous twelve years working for Anchor. I’m very happy about what I have contributed to the positive outcomes for children through conducting thorough staff HR procedures.
