Young People in Foster Care Achieve Great Results
Eight looked after young people who are cared for by foster carers from Blue Sky Fostering are celebrating their success after gaining 51 GCSE grades and 11 NQF grades between them.
All of these young people are continuing their education by going to college or taking a course through a Distant Learning Provider which will further help them to make sure they go on to have a bright future and the tools to succeed in the workplace.
The foster carers have played a large part in helping these young people achieve this through being there and supporting them with revision and during the exam process.

About Blue Sky Fostering
Blue Sky Fostering was established in 2005 to address the need for more foster carers in the south of England. Since then we have built a reputation for excellence providing extensive training and support throughout the challenges of being a professional foster carer. Working together with our foster carers we believe we can help every child reach their full potential regardless of their previous life experiences.
Based in Romsey, Hampshire, but operating across the south of England, Blue Sky supports over 70 foster carers, caring for around 85 children across the region. Blue Sky provides services across the South of England, get in touch if you have been researching Worthing foster agencies, Sussex foster agencies or are looking for a foster agency Gloucester. Blue Sky Fostering was deemed an 'outstanding' fostering provider following consecutive inspections by Ofsted in 2008 and 2011.
