Fostering in Oxfordshire

The Oxfordshire Children who need foster care

We work closely with the Oxfordshire Social Services Children's Placement Service to match the needs of children needing placement with our local approved foster carers. In Oxfordshire, 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 more complex disabilities
  • Parent and Child Placements (Usually mother and child)

Our Oxfordshire Fostering Service

We opened our fostering service in Witney, Oxfordshire in our office at the far end of Witney High Street about 17 years ago.

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

Our Tier 1 accreditation  as a provider of foster placements for Oxfordshire County Council means that we are contacted at an early stage in the process of finding local foster placements for Oxfordshire children. This means that if you decide to foster with our service, you are likely to be kept very busy.

Local Support

Our Oxfordshire foster carers are supported by a team of social workers who are based at our Witney, Oxfordshire office. All of our Oxfordshire foster carers receive  regular, usually fortnightly, visits by their own designated social worker.

Our Oxfordshire foster carers also have access to regular local foster carer support groups meetings and  training in Bicester, Oxford and Witney.
