Affinity Fostering

Our Story

Who we are, what we do.

Ofsted Report

Affinity Fostering Founded

Affinity Fostering Services was formed in 2013 by a highly experienced team who had previously worked together in the fostering sector. The aspirations were clear, to provide a professional, welcoming and friendly fostering service to carers, children and local authorities. 

We are very proud that we are an OFSTED rated outstanding Independent Fostering Agency, having been rated outstanding since our inception.

Supporting foster carers and safeguarding children and young people is at the heart of all we do and we work tirelessly to ensure our foster carers and children are well matched.

The Affinity team are passionate about supporting and training our foster carers in a number of ways, with a 2-day conference, 24/7 contact, a bespoke foster carer portal, activity days and our annual Voices inspired trip to name a few....

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."
