Interested in fostering in Reading?

There are currently around 300 children living in foster care in Reading. We're urgently looking for more kind and nurturing people to consider becoming foster parents to help build brighter futures for these children. 

At Orange Grove, we believe that relationships matter and we’re committed to nurturing them with foster parents and children all across the UK. So if you’re interested in fostering in Reading, we’d love to hear from you today.

Our aim is to make fostering a great experience for everyone. We get to know the children we support, so we’re able to understand their challenges and meet their needs. And we take time to build relationships with our foster parents, who know we’re always there for them. Working closely together we create strong bonds and a real sense of building for the future.

Join our team of passionate foster parents, so together, we can make an extraordinary difference to the lives of children in care.

About us

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 foster children 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.

This has been at the heart of our philosophy ever since we were first set up over 20 years ago. Today we have around 400 children currently in our care.
