From a local authority?

Diagrama Fostering is part of Diagrama Foundation, a UK charity dedicated to supporting children, families and adults at risk of social exclusion.

We work with many local authorities across the UK in a variety of ways. Our fostering agency is small enough to offer a personalised service, while benefitting from the sound backing of a wider international foundation and a substantial professional team with many years of expertise.

Diagrama Fostering is rated GOOD by Ofsted and we offer a reliable, professional and supportive service.

We have a child-centred approach to everything we do and believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, at all times. We offer a reliable, professional fostering service with well-trained carers who we have approved to meet the needs of looked after children.

Diagrama foster carers have a range of skills and abilities, including the capacity to look after large sibling groups, ADHD, Asperger’s, dyslexia, younger children, preparation for adoption or reunification home to birth family, unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors and long term permanence.

Our carers have extensive training, regular refreshers and are all child-focused in their approach. We welcome additional projects, whether that be Life Story work, therapeutic assessments or even ad-hoc training requirements.

If you have a particular need, Diagrama Fostering is happy to work with your organisation to find a solution to your challenge.
