To The Moon and Back Foster Agency
To the Moon and Back Foster Care is a different kind of foster agency
Our aim is to enable foster carers to feel knowledgeable, skilled and confident in their ability to support children and young people, who have experienced abuse or neglect, to reach their true potential in life.
We listen to and value our foster carers, ensuring they feel part of the improvement we make. We work proactively and offer round the clock support if needed, but we are so much more than someone at the end of a phone.
Moon and Back came from the vision of two friends, Angela and Alison.
After working in the fostering field for some time, they set out to create a special kind of fostering agency. Outstanding foster carer support, development and wellbeing is at the core of the agency, enabling foster carers to feel successful and valued.
The team are committed to the building of long-term relationships where foster carers feel cherished and respected for the crucial work they do with children in need of loving care and support.
Why choose Moon and Back
Because we walk the talk. Ofsted said this year.
They work tirelessly at the heart of the service, sharing their vision for children with the foster carers, the staff team and panel members. They shape and influence the children’s experiences. They readily seek feedback and the views of those involved in the agency. This approach drives improvement. Foster carers and supervising social workers speak highly of the registered manager and responsible individual’s care in placing children’s needs at the centre of daily activity.
We built this new kind of agency from scratch, starting with our vision, values, beliefs, and holistic approach. We have put our foster carers at the heart of our support team and recognise the vital role that each family play in helping our children to heal and succeed in life. Our social workers work with no more than 10 families, ensuring that they can work closely with our foster carers getting to know them well and supporting the whole family to succeed in fostering. We are ethical, with a strong vision for the children in our care. We work closely with our foster families, matching their abilities and lived experience, with children and young people who need a loving home.
