Kasper Fostering is a proud member of a number of organisations involved in fostering, children's services and practice excellence. We are an active member of local and national forums for Independent Fostering Providers in Kent and London, and chair the Best Practice sub group.
Fostering through Social Enterprise
Kasper is very proud to be a member of Fostering through Social Enterprise, a consortium of all voluntary and non profit fostering agencies in England and Wales (14 in total.)
FtSE represents the views, perspectives and experiences of its Member Agencies. It also has a lobbying function that aims to advocate for children in respect of regulation, as well as representing its membership at central government level.
Institute of Recovery from Childhood Trauma
The Institute of Recovery from Childhood Trauma is a ‘community of practice’ creating a collaborative approach between individuals and organisations, who share a passion to radically change the lives of children and young people who have suffered developmental trauma.
With currently no established organisation in the UK that systematically seeks to draw together information about childhood trauma, publicise it and influence practice and policy in this area, the IRCT seeks to close this gap.
Investors in People
Investors in People is owned by the UK government and managed nationally at Head Office by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES).
Investors in People helps organisations embed excellence, recognise achievement and value people, with a powerful journey to accreditation that makes a real difference.
The Fostering Network
The Fostering Network is a leading fostering charity in the UK. It recognises and champions the vital role that foster families play in transforming children’s lives, and work with fostering services to ensure they get the help and support they need.
