Testimonials

“It has been a quick, smooth process becoming approved foster carers with Acorn. Nothing ever seems to much much trouble for the team. The training is excellent and along with our supervising social worker and other foster carers there is a great deal of support. We have a large family and the children are at the forefront of everything! Birth children and foster children.

I wouldn’t hesitate recommending this company. “

Kate – North West Carer

“The continuous support from my supervising social worker has been greatly appreciated, this has given me a platform to air concerns, issues which I am not sure about. We can become complacent and he is there to put me on track. I value his support tremendously.
Support staff includes front line staff and support worker. They are an integral part of the agency, and every time I have contacted them they have gone out of their way to resolve my query, what elates your confidence further more it is when they give you a courtesy call back to keep you in the loop.
Management – the training delivered by managers has been excellent, I apply the acronym LLL you never stop learning, it is life long learning. They are approachable and they are also very helpful when I have had to deal with any issues
I would like to commend everyone and say a BIG THANK YOU”

Acorn House fostering supported us in our journey every step of the way, and we couldn’t ask for a better team, going above and beyond to ensure we felt completely ready and able to embark on this amazing career. The ongoing training and absolute support we have from our Supervising Social Worker, the administration team and from the management, is second-to-none and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Acorn House to anyone considering a very worthwhile career in fostering. We wouldn’t have done it without them!

Kieron – North West Carer

“I was approved as a foster carer with Acorn House just after the first lock down of coved 19 my supervising social worker continued with my approval though emails zoom and over the phone. I had continued support though these difficult times with continued training or catching up for a coffee and a chat or even playing bingo with other carers over zoom which took or minds of the current situation. acorns fostering have a very supportive team during the times when I had to deal with a difficult situation they where there no matter how late at night or early in the morning which was very much appreciated knowing that someone was there on the other end of the phone for me.”
