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 children in care. 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 TUSLA the Child and Family Agency in Ireland. 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.
FFI and Tusla are working together to urgently find five specialist foster carers to care for John, Colin, Jackie, Ella and Alison who are currently in, or likely to be placed within residential care.
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.
