Channel Fostercare is an independent Fostering Agency with Foster Carers living in Somerset and the surrounding counties. We were rated GOOD by Ofsted in 2012 and again in 2015 and as a small agency we pride ourselves on the stability of the children and young people’s placements.
We were established in December 2008 and since then have seen many successes with the children and young people who are placed with our Foster Carers.
Channel Fostercare is a small agency with a dedicated team that meets regularly which enables you get to know everyone including the Directors. We run various events for both the children and young people and their carers so they too have the opportunity to meet with the whole team rather than being a name amongst many.
The agency employs Social Workers and Administration personnel to support its Foster Carers and where needed we will commission independent services such as Therapists, Educationalists or Resource Workers.
Children and young people in our care are placed from Local Authorities including Bristol City Council, Dorset County Council, Somerset County Council and Wiltshire Council.
