What We Do

We help to place children who cannot live at home with safe and caring families.

We recruit family-focused foster carers and have a role in the assessment and placement processes involved in fostering. In addition, we offer training, support, respite days and more to help our carers. We use our knowledge and experience to encourage all of our foster carers to learn and grow in order to make the best possible difference to the children in their care.

Who We Are

Red Kite Fostering is an Independent Fostering Agency based in Herefordshire.

Established in 2010, we work in partnership with Local Authorities, organisations and families to provide a fostering service that will improve outcomes for vulnerable children. We recruit and serve families in Wales and the West Midlands.

Our team is experienced, motivated, and committed to delivering a child-centred service that helps foster carers provide a positive, lasting impact on the lives of looked after children.
