Foster Care Ireland recruits, assesses, trains and supports foster carers to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children and young people in need of care.

Our foster carers are assessed to national standards and are approved by a Tusla area Foster Care Committee before any placement is considered.

Foster care in Ireland is provided by Tusla – Child and Family Agency and by supporting non-statutory fostering agencies such as Foster Care Ireland who work in partnership with Tusla to provide for children in need.  We train, visit, monitor and support our foster carers while working with the Tusla social worker to secure the best outcomes for children.

Our on-call service operates to support our carers out of hours and at weekends with professional advice and back-up.
