Local Authorities

Local Authorities

Alpha Plus Fostering Agency is one of the leading providers of foster care in the North West, which makes us the agency of choice for many Local Authorities. Since 2000, we’ve been committed to matching each child with the most appropriate foster parents and we work closely with each Local Authority to ensure the foster placement always serves the child’s best interests.

Alpha Plus are able to provide the following types of placement:
  • Bridging
  • Short Term
  • Parent and Child
  • Emergency
  • Long Term
  • Respite

At Alpha Plus we provide high quality, child centered services for children and young people. We ensure that these children and young people are only placed with carers who can provide a warm, loving and stable family home.

All our carers are recruited, assessed, approved and reviewed in accordance with statutory regulations and National Standards guidelines.

The primary aims and objectives of the agency are:
  • To provide a high quality service for Looked after Children and Young People of all ages whose needs have been assessed by the responsible Local Authority as being best met by placement with Foster Carers.
  • To ensure children and young people are only placed with carers who have been recruited, assessed, approved and reviewed in accordance with statutory regulations and National Standards guidelines.
  • To support, supervise and provide on-going training to carers so that they are able to provide a comprehensive service that addresses physical, emotional, educational and health needs of the children and young people placed with them.
  • To promote positively the concept of fostering.
  • To bring together carers who will support, educate and inform each other and who will work in partnership with all relevant professionals and families involved with the child’s life.
