Foster with us in Reading!

Fostering offers children and young people a safe and caring home when they are unable to live with their birth family. This can often be a child’s or young person’s first positive experience of family life.

By becoming a foster carer, you can help make a significant and lasting difference to a young life. We’re on a mission to connect with everyone in Reading to help us find more foster carers, so we can keep our local children and young people rooted in Reading and give them a brighter future.

We are looking for people from all walks of life and experiences who have a spare room and live within 20 miles of Reading. Brighter Futures for Children IFA is a not-for-profit independent fostering agency (IFA) rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

We are the only not-for-profit IFA in the Reading area.
