MEET THE REGISTERED MANAGER: JAYNE FORD

 

"Hi I'm Jayne and I am the Registered Manager at Unity Foster Care. First and foremost, ‘a BIG welcome’ from all of us at Unity".

I have been working in fostering teams for many years, within local authority and the independent fostering sector. I have also been an approved foster carer myself.

A little more about Unity Foster Care, we are a small independent privately owned fostering agency, who pride ourselves on delivering a first-class fostering service to all our children and carers, whilst retaining that family feel throughout our agency.

We are a team of specialist fostering social workers and administrators with many years’ experience in matching children to foster families and supporting our carers.

 We know our foster carers do an amazing job, caring for our most vulnerable children and young people in society, helping them to recover from their childhood traumas and making sure they have every opportunity to become the best they can be.

 We hope you’ll want to join us
