Family Fostercare
welcome to the foster agency with a family feel


Sadly each year there are always more children in need of fostering than there are foster carers to look after them. We want to make 2018 the year we make it different - the year every child has a place to call home. Will you join us? We need more foster carers in all our regions and we warmly welcome all enquiries. Why not start by requesting more info to your inbox?

Karen's Channel Challenge

aspire fullFamily Fostercare Registered Manager Karen Gill-Rummens is back in the water again, this time for spinal cord injury charity, Aspire.

Having had a little bit of time to recover from completing the Great Swim in Salford Quays over the summer, Karen is feeling inspired to get back in the water again - this time no wetsuit required!

Karen is taking on the Aspire Channel Challenge, which involves swimming a total of 22 miles (the entire length of the English Channel) in her local pool over the next 12 weeks. Easy enough, did we hear you say? Well actually so did Karen! That's why, with true Yorkshire grit, she's challenged herself to complete the challenge in half the time! That's it - 6 weeks to swim 22 miles.

Karen will be raising money for Aspire, a fantastic charity close to her heart, which raises money for people who have been paralysed by spinal cord inury. According to Aspire, every 8 hours someone is paralysed by spinal cord injury. It can happen to anyone, at any time, and there's currently no cure. Without warning, someone's life changes completely in the most devastational way. Aspire exists to provide essential support, equipment and advice to people with spinal cord injuries in the UK and Ireland.

Karen is hoping to raise £150 for Aspire through this challenge. If you are interested in supporting her to achieve this target by sponsoring her please email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Every pound she raises means that Aspire can provide practical help to someone suffering from serious spinal injury, allowing them to lead a more independent life.

As I write, Karen's already started her challenge - 2 miles down, only 20 to go! Good luck Karen - at least the water will be cleaner and warmer this time round!
