Fostering in Hampshire

Our Hampshire Fostering Service

We opened our fostering service in Hampshire, which is now operated from just outside of  Fleet, about 17 years ago.

We are actively recruiting additional Hampshire based foster carers to meet the current high level of demand for foster placements for Hampshire children.

We need to recruit more foster carers in all parts of Hampshire, including: Alton, Aldershot, Andover,  Basingstoke,  Bishops Waltham, Blackwater,Farnborough,  Bordon, Fleet and Winchester.

fp.c is an fully accredited Tier 1 provider of foster placements for Hampshire County Council Social Services.

We work closely with our colleagues in Hampshire Social Services to provide foster homes for all of the local children in need. We are also one of only 3 fostering agencies that are accredited providers of foster placements for Hampshire  children who have disabilities  or other additional needs.

Our Tier 1 status as a provider of foster placements for Hampshire  means that we are contacted at an early stage in the process of finding local foster placements for Hampshire children.

The Hampshire Children who need foster care

We work closely with the Hampshire Social Services Children's Placement Service to match the needs of children needing placement with our local approved foster carers. In Hampshire, we urgently need to more recruit foster carers for:

  • Sibling groups of younger children
  • Children age 9+ who need short term placements
  • Children age 9+ who need long term/ permanent placements
  • Teenagers who need to remain with foster carers until they reach independence
  • Children who have mild and moderate level learning difficulties
  • Children who have  other disabilities or additional needs
  • Parent and Child Placements (Usually mother and child)

Local Support

Our Hampshire foster carers are supported by a team of social workers who are based at our offices near to Fleet. All of our Hampshire foster carers receive regular, usually fortnightly, visits by their own designated social worker.

Our Hampshire foster carers also have access to regular local foster carer support groups meetings and training in Basingstoke, Fleet, and Wickham.
