Fostering services roles

At the heart of our success as an independent fostering agency is an unwavering focus: to make sure that every young person in our care is fully supported and can reach their full potential. Our network of support workers, supervising social workers, support staff and managers work together in a caring, professional, like-minded way to ensure the needs and wishes of our young people and their foster carers are met, and that their voices are heard.

Here’s how a member of our fostering service describes being part of our team:

“I feel very lucky to be a part of Five Rivers. I first joined the team in an administration role, and have since progressed into a Fostering Support Worker role with backing and support from my wonderful colleagues and management who are encouraging me to reach my overall goal of becoming a Social Worker. Self-motivation is one thing, but having a team who believes in you and pushes you to achieve is so encouraging! Day to day, our line of work can of course be very challenging, but all of us here strive for the best possible outcomes for our children and young people and that’s what makes every day count and feel so rewarding. Job satisfaction is key, and I wouldn’t be where I am without Five Rivers!”
