There are three directors of the company, Mike, Eileen and Geoff, and all are actively involved in the company. FosteringMatters was established from one belief, that Fostering does Matter, and from one main aim and goal,  Positive Outcomes for Children.

The Right Carers. The Right Outcomes for Children.

FosteringMatters works tirelessly to bring only the best Carers into its family. Fosteringmatters’ aim from the start has been to deliver an exceptional service to Children and Carers alike.

Become a Carer

Safety First

Years of experience guides our approach to Carer selection & approval.

Beyond Best Practice

We know that children deserve the best carers and therefore work diligently during the approval process to ensure they get them.


Caring for Children is a rewarding and worthwhile vocation.

Financial Benefit

However in order to help attract and retain the best and most dedicated carers we also provide generous financial rewards.


Personal Privacy for Children & Carers is of paramount importance.


We work in accordance with all legislation when handling people’s personal information.
