We’re here to help
We are Active Care Solutions (ACS), a cultural and faith based foster care agency run by a team of dedicated people from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
Our goal is simple – to give every child we care for the best start in life by placing them with foster carers who can provide a caring home, as well as meeting their individual cultural and religious needs.
We believe every child deserves to grow up in a loving, nurturing family home – somewhere they can feel valued and have their own identity.
That’s why we’re the only independent fostering agency providing bespoke cultural and faith-based foster placements.
