Local Authority

Local Authority

Archway Care is part of The National Fostering Agency Group (NFA) and is based in Milton Keynes, from where all our extensive support functions are coordinated. From this office we recruit and look after foster carers all over the east of England including Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire and Peterborough.

We work with local authorities throughout the UK, offering and providing high quality foster placements for children and young people in need of care. We start from the premise that all children and young people, regardless of who they are and what they have been through, have a right to live in a caring home free from abuse and neglect. The cornerstone of Archway Care is our excellent and highly trained team of professional foster carers who provide supportive foster placements for children and young people in their care.

Our objectives

To ensure that placements offered to looked after children meet their needs and the needs of other children already living in the home.

To maintain robust systems which ensure that our placed children are protected and listened to and that their emotional, educational, psychological and health needs are identified and met.

To provide carers with the support of a qualified social worker, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.

To supply carers with specialist educational, medical and psychological support and advice as and when required in relation to the needs of each child.

To develop Archway Care into one of the most successful independent foster agencies.

Our principles

Archway Care places considerable emphasis upon integrity and being able to demonstrate how ethical principles inform day-to-day practice.

Archway Care is committed to the belief that all children and young people, without exception, have a right to experience high-quality positive family life. In addition, Archway Care believes that children and young people who are fostered deserve the highest standard of care, along with the social, psychological and educational support necessary to help them develop towards and achieve their full potential.
