Who are Alpha Plus Fostering?

Alpha Plus Fostering is an outstanding independent Fostering Agency based in the North West of England, established since 2000 we are a local community based agency. Described as ‘one of the very best agencies to work for’ in our most recent Ofsted inspection.

Alpha Plus provides fostering services to Local Authorities across the North West. We are a tier 1 provider across all three age bands for all of our local authority partners. Which means that we are a preferred provider and will be approached to provide care to young people and children ahead of our tier 2 and tier 3 competitors. This means that the opportunity for placements to be made is increased for carers registered with Alpha Plus.

Throughout Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire and Cheshire, our dedicated team of foster carers, social workers and support staff work together to achieve one sole aim: To provide safe, caring homes where children can move forward following difficult life experiences; develop their confidence and self esteem and where they can flourish as individuals capable of achieving their potential.

Our aim is to provide the highest quality care to our children and support to our foster carers, by providing a professional, supportive and engaged service. We are committed to going above and beyond to ensure that we are so much more than just a fostering agency!
