Our history

Kasper was founded in 1997 by Director Mac Ornsby and a committed multi-disciplinary group of child care professionals. After a long career providing for the welfare of children in Local Authority care, Mac took early retirement to concentrate on establishing an independent fostering agency.

Today, our ethos and founding principles remain exactly the same – that the sole aim of every staff member and foster carer is to make a real and measurable difference to the lives of the children we work with.

Not for profit and quality care

As a non profit making organisation (limited by guarantee), any surplus revenue is reinvested directly back into our care giving services for children and young people – we don’t have shareholders, and we don’t pay profit bonuses.

The Agency takes a planned and steady approach to expansion in order to preserve its highest priority - that our services and resources continue to deliver against outcomes identified for every child we place.
