HMG Fostering Agency has an Ofsted Rating of “GOOD” two inspections running and we pride ourselves on being able to offer a service via our enhanced Foster Carers who receive in depth training on a regular basis. In addition to this our foster parents have been trained to a high standard to complete Life Story Books for the children they care for.
Our Foster Carers are aware that their role is to help promote each child’s emotional wellbeing and will use every opportunity to offer a child a nurturing environment. Each foster parent will work closely with the professionals involved and help the child to prepare for their individual Care Plan whilst keeping the child’s best interest central to all the work undertaken.
HMG Fostering is owned by co-directors Marcus Mikely and Barbara Walters-Ennis and together they have over 50 years experience in child protection and safeguarding.
