Orange Grove Ofsted

Orange Grove was founded in 1996 by two social workers who understood that strong relationships held the key to successful fostering.

As with all families, relationships matter. They provide a stable platform for growth, which is why we commit time, effort and resources into nurturing them constantly.

We do this for the children in our care by getting to know them and providing a safe and positive family environment. We do it for our foster parents by treating them individually and tailoring our support to their needs. And we take care to build strong and positive relationships with local authorities and our other partners, so we can all work effectively together.

Why work with us?

We've been providing quality foster care to thousands of children for over 25 years. Each of our local offices are rated by Ofsted as 'Outstanding' or 'Good'.

Generous payments and rewards

We offer a competitive allowance, plus birthday and religious festival allowances, an exclusive refer-a-friend scheme and more.

Commitment to lasting bonds

Today, we have around 400 children currently in our care. We’re not an especially large fostering agency, but we’re a highly supportive one where our personal approach and commitment to teamwork helps create strong and long-lasting bonds. In turn, these help children grow and prepare effectively for the life ahead of them. 

This focus on forging strong relationships has helped establish Orange Grove as a highly respected agency, known for the quality of our support and positive outcomes for children, as well as our rigorous approach to quality assurance. All of our centres nationwide are rated as either ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, a clear indication of the quality of our work.

Backed-up with a determination to learn, improve and grow even stronger, it’s helped us establish productive relationships with commissioning teams and local authorities who all recognise the exceptional nature of our work.
