Take your first step

What makes ACS so different to other fostering agencies?

Our team come from a wide range of diverse backgrounds and we specialise in caring for children from all ethnic backgrounds.

Our team are also people of faith, although not exclusively.  This means that the culture of our organisation respects our families religious needs and we celebrate key religious festivals throughout the year, from Christmas to Ramadan and many, many more inbetween.

Key to our success is creating a community of people from very different backgrounds with differing beliefs, but despite our differences, our foster parents describe ACS as a family, where all are welcome and everyone is treated with respect and appreciation.

Why is this important to us?

We recruit foster parents from all faiths and every ethnicity because we believe every child deserves to grow up in a loving, nurturing family home – somewhere they can feel valued and have their own identity.

By being a truely multi-cultural fostering service, enables us to specialise in providing cultural placement matches for children of faith and non-faith.

I'm White British and I'm not religious - is ACS still for me?

Absolutely.  When we say all cultures and ethnic background, we mean all.  Our White British foster parents value being part of a truely diverse team and they appreciate our great family feel and our culture for respect, openness and tolerance.

Great rewards and benefits for foster parents

"We’ve fostered with ACS right from when they started. I was a residential worker for young people and Lionel worked in the painting and decorating industry.

It is a positive experience fostering for ACS. Lionel and I always feel supported as foster parents. ACS staff have always been readily available for support and advice at any time of the day or night. We feel very much a part of a tight-knit and diverse fostering family."
