Whatever point you’re at, our team of experienced independent social workers have the expertise needed to give you advice tailored to your needs. As well as this, we provide a clear and simple application service and can run you through the various factors that determine what the best fostering agency in and around Salisbury (or elsewhere) is for you, helping you make the most of your start to a fostering career.

Why does the area need more carers, and why don’t more people apply to foster in Salisbury?

There has been a long-standing shortage of foster carers in the UK, but fostering in Salisbury is an area that needs particular attention. The reality is that there are not enough foster carers which means that the risk of children being placed with carers who might not be the most suitable is much higher resulting in placements falling through more quickly, which in turn causes the child additional distress and disorientation.

We are reaching out to the community to try and raise awareness of the issue, with the aim to get more people to apply to foster in Salisbury so the matching process is improved, in turn leading to kids and young people coming from troubling backgrounds ending up with the right support at the outset, to move forward with their lives.
