Affinity Fostering

Our Story

Who we are, what we do.

Ofsted Report

About Us

When Affinity Fostering Services was founded in 2013 our aspirations were clear. Having previous, extensive experience in the fostering sector, we wanted to ensure that we provided a professional, welcoming, and friendly fostering service for carers, children, and local authorities.

Supporting foster carers and safeguarding children is at the heart of everything that we do. That’s why we work tirelessly to ensure our young people and their foster families are well matched and why we are passionate about supporting and training our foster carers. From providing an annual 2-day conference and 24/7 support to our carers to listening to our young people through our Voices programme, we have consistently proved that Affinity Fostering is an inspirational and forward-thinking agency.

Ofsted agree and have always ranked us Outstanding!

Personal message from Denise Robins

"I have been overseeing Affinity Fostering Services since its inception in 2013. Having held many roles in the fostering sector, I understand the rigours of the fostering task and now have the pleasure of passing those experiences onto my son Andy. Andy is taking up the responsibilities of the company to ensure its longevity as a privately owned company, whilst I will remain as the Responsible Individual for the company. I have complete confidence that Affinity will go from strength to strength and continue to turn young lives around."
