Foster carers offer a safe and stable family home for children and young people who are unable to live with their own families and are in the care of the State. There are all sorts of reasons why children come into foster care and we work with our foster carers to support them for as long as they need it.
FFI is an independent fostering agency. This means that we work in partnership with Tusla to offer fostering placements to children and young people in care across Ireland.
We are here to make becoming a foster carer as easy as possible and will provide you with all the advice and guidance you need to help you start your journey. We will respond to your enquiry in a timely manner and will ensure that your assessment is completed without delay.
When you join FFI as a foster carer you will receive comprehensive training, brilliant support and competitive allowances from the minute you join us. It’s all part of how we look after our foster carers.
