The Futures Group is committed to supporting local authorities to meet their sufficiency targets as required under Section 22G of the Children Act 1989 (‘the 1989 Act’). The organisation’s recruitment strategy is to recruit foster carers from different backgrounds, cultures and religions to ensure that more choice is available to local authorities when seeking placements.
The Futures Group works in partnership on a contractual basis to provide foster placements for children and young people from all regions of the UK.
Looked after children represent the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community. At Fostering Options it is our objective to provide support and conditions in which these most vulnerable young people can thrive and achieve a positive outcome from their time spent in foster care. There is much work to be done to redress the disadvantages these children have experienced and little time to do this before they become independent young adults.
For many children a positive outcome may be a return to their parents or extended family. Maintaining contact and working with genuine respect for the child’s family is crucial for keeping these options available. Other children may succeed best in long term alternative families including permanent foster care placements.
If you are a Local Authority and would like to place a child or young person with us please contact our placements team:
