Careers - our team

The Orange Grove family

We are a small but highly respected fostering agency, supporting over 400 children and their families. We were founded in 1996 by two social workers who understood that strong relationships held the key to successful fostering.

Our strong relationships and commitment have helped establish us as an inspiring agency, known for the quality of our support, our positive outcomes for children and our high level of quality assurance.

The Orange Grove family is formed of an experienced team; from social workers, therapists, fostering and education advisors, to staff within our Training, HR, Finance and Recruitment teams.

If you're interested in joining our family and starting an exciting career in foster care then we'd love to hear from you!
