Fostering is an amazing journey that can turn a child’s life around. It could even change yours too.
At FFI, we know that foster carers have a huge impact on the lives of looked after children. That’s why we provide them with the support and training they need to provide the highest quality foster care placements.
We’re a leading independent fostering agency working in partnership with the Health Service Executive (HSE) in Ireland. Founded in May 2005, we’ve developed a reputation for providing fully compliant, carefully matched and well supported foster placements.
Since being founded in May 2005, we’ve developed a reputation for providing fully compliant, carefully matched and well supported foster placements. This means that, with the support of our fully qualified and experienced staff, our carers can meet the needs of the children and young people in their care.
When you foster with us, you’ll benefit from excellent training and support from the moment you join our team – and throughout your fostering journey.
Deirdre, her husband Willie and their three children have been fostering with FFI since 2007. During this time they have cared for 15 children and young people.
In 2007 our FFI link social worker brought us details about a 12 year old boy named Derek. He wasn’t going to school, he was drinking and abusing solvents and he had recently been diagnosed with ADHD and was refusing to take his medication.
Like any family, some days we all got on and other days we would all fall out. But my strongest memories are of the good times.
My name is Amy. I’ve been in care since I was eight years old and I’ve been with my FFI foster carers since I was 14.
