We are a team of experienced professionals who are passionate about improving the life-chances of children and young people that come into care or are already in care. We are committed to working with foster carers to provide them with the support they need to ensure that children and young people have every opportunity to thrive in a loving, caring environment.
Paramount Foster Care aims to transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people placed in our care.
As a child/young person centered agency and working holistically, we aim to provide high levels of permanency, very few disruptions, coupled with excellent support surrounding the child/young person’s education and emotional progress. The agency will always put the needs of children and young people at the heart of everything it does.
