Why choose Outset?

We value our carers and the children they care for, and we believe it’s really important for them to have a good quality of life. That is why we pay a generous weekly fostering allowance which is made up of a professional fee for yourself and also a day to day living allowance for the child.

We want to support you in every way possible. Fostering with Outset you will have access to 24/7 professional phone support. We will also provide you with a wide range of high-quality, flexible training courses designed to give you valuable skills and help you grow.

We recognise that every household is different. We want the best outcomes for the children and young people in your care. That is why we have a rigorous process in place to ensure careful matching of placements.
