Achieving for Children

About us

Achieving for Children Fostering provides foster care services for Kingston, Richmond and Windsor & Maidenhead Councils.

We are judged to be ‘good’ by Ofsted.

We’re unique: we are an independent fostering agency owned by the three councils. Achieving for Children, our parent company, is a successful not-for-profit social enterprise running all social care services for local children.

So with us you get the best of both worlds: you will be first in line to have local children matched and placed as you’ll be an in-house carer.  And you’ll also be part of a fast developing, independent fostering agency which is looking to innovate and develop a wide range of fostering services.

We’re looking for more people from a range of backgrounds to become foster carers.

Ofsted inspection report

Following an inspection in September 2019, we are judged ‘good’ by Ofsted.

The report highlighted the outcomes achieved for children and young people, stating that the ‘service provides high-quality foster care placements. The outcomes for children
and young people are very positive. They develop secure attachments with their foster families and have a very strong sense of belonging.’

You can read the report on the Ofsted website.
