“Seeing the children doing so well and going on to live normal, happy lives gives me the greatest satisfaction.”
We are PICS (Partnerships in Children’s Services), a family of independent fostering agencies who share a vision for building a brighter future for children in care.
We believe that looked after children deserve the same opportunities as those living with their birth family and have built a community of passionate and skilled foster carers to help them feel secure, develop and thrive.
Our agencies have some of the happiest foster carers in the country, proven by our excellent carer retention rates. Each receiving the best quality training, around-the-clock support and benefitting from a close network of other carers and staff who become like a second family.
Together, we are transforming lives.
