About By the Bridge
By the Bridge provides Foster Parents with skills, knowledge, tools, guidance and support they need to provide the very best care to children.
We find and train Foster Parents so that young people in care get a better chance in life as a result of their foster family's commitment and dedication.
Originally founded by Foster Parents in 2002, we are a therapeutic fostering organisation with offices across the country, in the: North West, Eastern, Midlands, South and South East regions. We have an excellent team of Foster Parents who are supported by our experienced local teams across the UK.
We provide different types of fostering; short-term and long-term fostering which can last from just a few days to several months or years.
Our unique approach to fostering puts the Foster Parents at the centre of our team, supporting the development and progress of a child. Seeing a child in care discover their potential, giving them the best possible chance at happiness is what makes fostering with us so rewarding.
Children and young people are at the very heart of everything that we do, but we never forget that Foster Parents must be well cared for and valued by us too, if they are to do their very best work.
