And, what makes us different?

LiKa is a foster care agency with a unique approach that aims to improve the training and support of foster carers

For our foster carers

Fun Training

We provide frequent, fun, reflective foster care training and supervision, to enhance your skills and development.

Tailored supervision

Individual supervision can be increased in intensity and frequency as and when you need. We also provide group supervision with your fostering peers once a month, led by a systemic psychotherapist.

More complexity, more support

Practical and financial support increases where there are complex issues identified.
For Local Authority Social Workers

Direct support

If requested, LiKa SSW will undertake direct work with children alongside the foster carer during times of crisis.
