Our Exeter Office

Our team consists of a registered service manager, a team manager, senior practitioner and a number of supervising social workers. The social work staff are all highly-qualified, HCPC registered and have extensive experience of working in fostering services.

We also have fostering support workers who are available to assist foster carers and their children alongside our dedicated Assessment and Therapy specialists who can expertly guide you 24/7. The team is supported by administrators who will ensure that all information is handled efficiently and confidentially.

Our team on the ground in Devon have the local knowledge and ability to promote a sense of ‘family’  among our carers throughout the region. Foster carers are encouraged to meet up to discuss ways to improve the service and we always listen to the voice of the child encouraging participation in decisions affecting their care.

We are keen to hear from new and experienced foster carers from Devon including Exeter, Plymouth, Torquay, Paignton, Newton Abbott, Okehampton, Tiverton, Barnstaple, Bideford, Ilfracombe and all surrounding areas.

“Attending the support groups and training is a good opportunity to meet up with other foster carers and share problems and listen to how we all deal with different situations.” – carer

“I love being part of a family with brothers and sisters and dogs!” – child age 5
