"Swiis are not just a fostering agency, they are friends and family who we can lean on when times are hard."

Lisa and Ed's fostering story

Foster carers Lisa and Ed

From the moment Swiis came into our home for the initial home visit we knew that we had chosen the right fostering agency.

They were very friendly and made us feel listened to and at ease.

Throughout the fostering assessment process, we were greatly supported and Swiis frequently kept in touch to update us with everything that was happening with our application to become foster carers.

When we came to our fostering panel, we were so nervous but the team in the North East office made us feel very much at home and immediately part of the Swiis family.

Since becoming foster carers, Swiis have made us and the children we care for feel like we are part of an extended family.

They are always supporting us and making sure that we are doing well and if not, go above and beyond our expectations to help.

It has been a rough road for everyone through these Covid-19 unprecedented times but Swiis have not faltered.

Swiis have brought smiles to the children we look after and words of encouragement to ourselves.

For us both, Swiis are not just a fostering agency, they are friends and family who we can lean on when times are hard.
