efc | Enhanced Foster Care is an established Independent Fostering Agency in the South and South West providing quality and unrivalled foster placements for children and young people aged 0 to 18 years who are unable to live at home either in the short term or those children that require forever homes. Enhanced Foster Care forms part of a group of owner-managed children’s services called Enhanced Children’s Services. We believe that foster carers are a vital part of the team, providing quality homes for all children. We also specialise in offering placements to children and young people who have complex needs and may experience difficulties that impact on how they manage their lives and their feelings. We work as a team therapeutically with children and young people to achieve the best possible outcomes. This provides foster carers a unique opportunity to be a valued member of a multidisciplinary team around each child. If you are equally passionate about helping young people or are an already approved Foster Carer who wants to make a difference and belong to an agency with passionate beliefs, values and vision, we will offer you an unrivalled package of support to ensure children and young people prosper in our foster agency.
"Only 2% of young people experience unplanned endings at EFC compared to the national figure of 12% for all independent fostering agencies. "
"The agency’s recruitment, selection, preparation and assessment processes for new foster carers are extremely thorough. The agency’s foster carers are very much a part of the professional team supporting the young person; they provide sound care in line with the agency’s statement of purpose. The good support, supervision and training that they receive from the agency enables them to care for and meet the diverse needs of the young people placed with them. Foster carers demonstrate excellent nurturing skills, innovative practice and a high level of commitment, assisting individual young people to achieve and succeed."
