Orange Grove is an Independent Foster Care agency that looks after vulnerable children and young people. Our aim is to ensure that those in our care lead happy, enquiring, active childhoods, recognising that this provides the foundations for fulfilled and productive adulthoods.
With the help and commitment of our foster carers we will strive to provide the essential foundations for life, influencing their learning, educational attainment, economic participation and health. This is all planned around the individual needs and interests of each child or young person and involves our foster carers working in close partnership with a variety of practitioners.
Foundations are the most important principle in life the world over – whether it relates to buildings, family, or learning –they are the base upon which everything else thereafter is built upon and as such are essential for progress through life.
If children and young people are left behind due to a lack of adequate foundations, they will struggle as they get older and their life chances will be relatively limited.
The return on public investment in high quality foster care is substantial, leading to decreased social problems, reduced inequality in a child’s later life.
In a child or young persons’ often turbulent life, foster care can provide that foundation of stability that supports all other aspects of human development—from the formation of friendships and the ability to cope with adversity to the achievement of success in school, work, and community life.
If you can provide that all important stability that will to make a real difference to the life of a vulnerable child or young person, then please browse our website at http://www.orangegrovefostercare.co.uk and discover how we can help you lay the foundation of a new life.
