I am confident the children in my care will look back and see that we had their best interests at heart and we did our best for them. I nurture the young mothers like they were my own daughter.

Why foster a child with us?

Our name reflects our aim which is to inspire the children and young people placed in our care to “own” and take control of their “own lives”.

Children and foster families are at the centre of what we do. We are there for you 24/7. We are a team.

With OwnLife, we train you so that you have the necessary skills, knowledge, tools, guidance and support you need to provide the very best care to children, allowing children to achieve the very best possible outcomes in their lives.

You are professionals in your field; you are the expert and an equal partner in our team.

The agency runs support groups, being a place for carers to share successes and challenges of the role with the rest of the team. It is vital to share experience and help one another.

We also provide therapeutic supervision when required whether that’s for the carer or the young person in their care.
