Why Foster with us?


Need more Information?

We’re a family run fostering agency that is always there for you.

Situated in the village of Great Wratting, just outside Haverhill in Suffolk, we border the surrounding counties and have excellent links to Cambridgeshire, Essex and Herts.

Everyone at Little Acorns dedicates their combined knowledge and skills to the recruitment, training and support of foster carers and we strive to achieve long-term, stable placements for the children in our care.

We pull out all the stops to give the very best chance to disadvantaged children along with the fostering families who are committed to caring for them.

Regular training, 24-hour support and generous allowances are in place and carers and children, both birth and looked after, have access to all levels of the Little Acorns team; and not just when a crisis occurs!

24/7 Support

You’ll be supported with generous pay and allowances, in addition to regular training and support whenever you need it. We have a 24-hour support line, so we are always at the end of the phone no matter what time of the day.

1st Class Training

Little Acorns recognise that fostering has become increasingly demanding and complex and we are committed to providing the highest quality training that is accessible and relevant to all our foster carers and their support networks.

‘Being in a family unit and the fact I was made to feel welcome and comfortable is what I like about being fostered’.
