Diagrama – a non-profit agency where people, not profits, come first

Why Foster with Diagrama?

With so many different foster care agencies out there it can be confusing to know where to start with your fostering journey. Every agency is unique, operating with different values and priorities, so it’s important to find a fostering agency that feels like the right fit for you. Fostering is very rewarding but challenging too - so you need to have confidence you have a team around you who will offer comprehensive, professional support as soon as you need it.

"Managers and staff have good
relationships with key agencies and individuals who are involved in supporting children in foster care."

Diagrama Fostering –
where foster carers are highly valued

Our foster carers have a crucial role at the heart of our team. As a progressive, caring and child-focused agency, we make training and supporting our foster carers a priority because we know that foster carers who have confidence in their own ability to care for children are the ones who are best able to provide a home where vulnerable children and young people can truly thrive. Unlike commercial foster agencies, any decisions made within our organisation are always made with the best interests of the children front of mind – without the distraction of commercial considerations.

People not profits

Unlike many other agencies – we’re not profit-focused. While our foster carers are all well rewarded for their outstanding care, no one is here to ‘make money’ from foster care. The children always come first and surplus funds are channelled back into the service.

Small enough to care

Diagrama is a large charitable organisation which means we’re big enough to deliver excellent support but small enough for you and the children in your care to really matter. You’ll never struggle to get hold of someone and your voice will always be heard.
