Parallel Parents is an independent fostering agency rated "outstanding" by Ofsted. We have over 20 years of experience and more than 200 foster carers looking after children and young people. We are a family run agency and believe that our child-focussed approach makes us really stand out from other agencies.

What do our foster carers say?

We have lots of everyday heroes that we work with. Here is what our carers say about fostering with Parallel Parents.

I have realised my true potential and hope to achieve more in the future through Parallel Parents.

Parallel Parents is a very caring agency. It is not like being part of a corporate organisation; instead it is more like being part of a family.

I feel like a valued member of a special team and very proud of it.

I could not do the job without my fostering advisor. She is like part of our extended family. She is very supportive and always there to help.

Our fostering advisor is always available to offer help and support when needed. Our foster child always looks forward to seeing her and even cleans his room when she is going to visit!

Our fostering advisor always looks at ways to support us and will go above and beyond to help in any way... She is an inspiration!

When I had a very difficult placement, my fostering advisor came 7 nights a week – brilliant!

I have to say that the level of support I have received has been second to none... It didn't matter what time of night I contacted my support team,

they were always very supportive and helpful and nothing was ever or is ever too much trouble for them. There has never been a time when I have not received support when needed.

Training is very helpful and informative and questions are always answered and explained.

All members of the family are involved, treated equally and supported.

Having spent most of his childhood growing up in foster care, Sam knew just how big an impact foster carers have in a child's life. And now he's decided to do something to help children like himself by becoming a foster carer!

After the breakdown of his family when he was just seven, Sam was separated from his older brothers and sister. He stayed with numerous foster families and went into residential care for a while, but settled with a foster carer called Janet who really helped to change his life.
