With families in Wales and the West Midlands, our multi-disciplinary team are experienced, motivated and committed to helping you make a real and lasting changes to the lives of children.
If you would like to join our team or just find out more about fostering or our work, call us for a chat. We would love to hear from you.
We had thought about fostering for years, and were so glad we chose Red Kite as our partner in this venture. They explained everything so clearly, not hiding the downsides, helping us to develop our skills, so that we could become foster carers. Tony and all the staff at Red Kite are always available for anything we need, help, advice or just someone to talk to. All in probability, the greatest decision we ever made was to join Red Kite Fostering.
Red Kite Fostering is a fantastic team to work with. Yes, I do mean TEAM and WITH as opposed to AGENCY and FOR.
I would go further – for the word TEAM substitute FAMILY because that’s what it feels like. In my experience as a foster carer there has always been the US and THEM barrier between carer and agency/authority; with Red Kite the ethos of nurturing and attachment extends beyond the looked after children. It is evidently also in place for staff and carers alike.
We were approved for fostering by Red Kite Fostering in September 2013. We had our first placement in October 2013 and have not looked back. From day one, the support we have had has been impeccable. We have training offered to us, there is always someone to talk to if needed. I love the networking coffee mornings. They made us feel at ease with no pressure. Placement matches are carefully discussed and thought out to ensure the child suits your family and lifestyle. I thought it would be a daunting experience but Red Kite assured us it wouldn’t be and they were right.
Fancy an ice-cream?

We like a challenge at Red Kite Fostering which is why 5 intrepid explorers set off from Red Kite HQ on Friday the 13th of January to scale the biggest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro. Team Red Kite consisted of office staff, project managers, social workers and foster carers, all wanting to get to the summit of 5895 metres. The pictures show how much of a challenge this was for the team who braved sleeping in the jungle, crossing deserts, climbing the Barranco wall (Google it!) and altitude sickness. Happy to say the whole team got to the top as did 5 others who also joined the party.
Team Red Kite also got the chance to help the locals and support a school close to the Hotel they stayed in for the night. In all a great adventure and a huge team building exercise.
Thanks to all that made this great adventure possible including all the staff and mountain guides of Kandoo adventures.
If you want to join a team that likes a challenge give us a call on 01544231657 and we will be happy to tell you of the exciting adventures you can have fostering with Red Kite Fostering. ... See MoreSee Less
