Our goal is to build incredible futures for vulnerable children and young people in the UK by empowering them to be happy and make their way in the world.
We achieve this by investing in our foster carers, so you can give children and young people a safe, supportive and nurturing environment where they can thrive and be happy.
We are a local agency with a family-feel who are easily accessible at every level of our organisation. We work with over 16 different Local Authorities across the UK. Our team is eager to help you – they are a tight-knit group of care professionals who support our foster carers from initial enquiry through to carer approval, training and ongoing placements.
Our training courses are available to all our foster carers. They’re completely free, high-quality and flexible. Created and delivered by fostering professionals, they give you valuable skills to help you grow in confidence and knowledge. Plus, they fit around your lifestyle – they are delivered at a venue local to you or online.
At Ikon you shouldn’t have to worry about financial security – we want you to be able to focus on your role as foster parent. So we offer a good financial package that sets a high standard across the field. In addition we offer our carers many benefits and perks including memberships to fostering organisations and access to our specialist support groups.
If you’re a foster carer, you have the right to transfer from another foster agency or transfer from a local authority to Ikon Fostering. The process is fairly straightforward, and you can still do it if you currently have a foster child placed with you.
