Our Services

Since 2000 NEWFOCAS have been providing safe, secure and therapeutic placements for traumatised children and young people with challenging behaviour and complex needs or insecure and disordered attachments.

We are the preferred option for many local authority child care services and, unlike many larger fostering agencies, we know all our carers and their placements on a personal and individual basis. Furthermore, our dedicated and highly skilled carers are given 'around the clock' support and are never left to deal with a crisis situation alone.

Regulated by Care & Social Services Inspectorate in Wales, our services conform to the exacting standards expected and receive excellent annual inspection reports. Small enough to care, yet large enough to exceed expectations, we are dedicated to providing an exemplary level of service and pride ourselves on having achieved an outstanding national reputation.

Unlike larger Fostering Agencies, we are small enough to know all our Carers and their placements on a very individual basis and carers are never left to deal with a crisis situation alone or unsupported.

An new FOCAS on exceptional care

An independent fostering agency, we specialise in providing high quality, family-based care for children with severe emotional, behavioural, and attachment difficulties who have experienced neglect, abuse and, frequently, a number of placement moves.

We therefore believe the matching process of placement to carer is of fundamental importance. And through stringent processes we ensure our foster carers only look after children perfectly matched to their skills and area/s of expertise. Furthermore, we endeavour to locate placements as close to their schools and friends.
