‘The mind-set is refreshing; the value base is all about the children’
(Ofsted report 2016)
Many other agencies have now been taken over by large corporate organisations, whose main aim is to make money for shareholders or pension funds. We believe that this is not the way forward and care passionately about the welfare of the children that we look after.
Lighthouse fostering is a small ‘not for profit’ organisation that was started by foster carers and care leavers. We have an independent advisory board consisting of care leavers and a foster carer representative, these people help to steer the direction Lighthouse Fostering takes and ensure that children and carers are at the heart of all that we do.
