Star Fostering is a ‘family owned’ Independent Fostering Agency set up by Robert and Sharon North who both strongly believe that a good family life is extremely important for children growing up and they set up Star Fostering in order to help children and young people by finding the best Foster Carers to look after them.

Statement of Purpose – Jan 2024 (Word format)


Children and Young People that are unable to live with their own birth families are provided with a family life that enables them to have fun, learn and develop into adults that have the potential to create a good life for themselves and the ability to build their own stable families.


Star Fostering fully supports and values our Foster Carers, recognising they are the foundation of the service we provide.   We ensure that Foster Carers receive excellent quality support and training so that they can offer a very high level of care to children and young people, from new-born up to 18 years.  Working in partnership with our Foster Carers and the child’s social worker, we aim to ensure that any child placed within our agency is able to enjoy their childhood and reach their full potential.

We offer:

  • Competitive allowances
  • Good quality training
  • Good quality support 24/7
  • Access to therapeutic services
  • Membership to the Fostering Network
  • Foster carer buddies and support groups
  • A family agency with family values – everyone counts!
