Ideal Fostering is built upon family values, where we focus upon making the best placements for children and young people, to ensure this we work with a wide range of local authorities including Birmingham, Walsall, Staffordshire, Sandwell, Telford and Wrekin, Buckinghamshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Newcastle, Stoke on Trent, Solihull, Coventry and other agencies across the West Midlands.
Originally based in the Heart of Birmingham, we then moved our main office to Walsall where we have been able to grow and continue our committment to be able to provide the highest standard of foster care for children and young people across the country so that they can achieve the best outcomes.
We are registered, regulated and inspected by Ofsted, a government body responsible for children's services. We work hard to recruit the best foster parents who perform that vital role in caring for children and young people in our society.
We are a multi- cultural team of experienced social workers and support staff. Our Management team have vast experience within the Local Authority and the independent sector. Our team have regular training to ensure their knowledge base is kept up to date with the changing climate within the world of children's services.
