About Kasper Fostering

Kasper provides a high quality fostering service for children and young people aged from 0 – 18 years old when they are unable to live with their own birth families.

This can be for many reasons; for example a family breakdown, relationship problems, a parent's ill health or passing, drug or alcohol related issues, and when a child's welfare is threatened. Children may have suffered trauma through experiencing neglect, deprivation, physical injury and abuse.

Kasper Fostering works with a wide range of young people, in particular sibling groups who need to stay together; young mums and their babies; teenagers with challenging behaviours, and children with complex physical and mental health needs.

What we do

The Agency exists first and foremost for the primary benefit of the young people placed with our foster families. Every child is appropriately matched with experienced, skilled and trained carers committed to meeting their individual needs.

Our goal is for every child to either return home successfully, experience a stable permanent placement and/or achieve independent living - whichever is most appropriate. We want our young people to be healthy, well-rounded, resilient individuals who have been provided with the opportunities to realise their full potential.

We are dedicated to providing child-centred, high quality and value for money foster care services. We prepare, support, train, develop and reward foster carers; we also work closely with Local Authorities to safeguard childrens' welfare and achieve positive outcomes.
