Who we work with

As an Independent Fostering Charity, The CFT is affiliated with various organisations and works with more than 100 Local Authorities across the United Kingdom.

Part of the Fairer Fostering Partnership

The Fairer Fostering Partnership (FFP) is small consortium of charitable and non-profit fostering agencies who work together to eliminate the discrimination that children and young people in care sometimes face. FFP also works to lobby and advocate for children and young people at central government level.

As part of The FFP, our organisation is required to be transparent in the work we do with an emphasis on promoting good practice in networking. Additionally any surplus raised by The CFT is re-invested into supporting children and young people in placement and beyond. This means that for the children and young people The CFT work with are cared for to a high standard, advocated for where necessary and seen as individuals, with their voices heard.
