‘I believe that in foster care recruitment there is another way, and that way is the ‘Not for Profit’ way…’

Verve is an Independent Foster Care Recruitment company with a charitable purpose. We are NOT a Fostering Agency; every penny profit we make is invested into the articles and campaigns we use to recruit foster carers who can make a difference for children in care.

It’s good news week!

I am proud to say it’s been a good week for Verve. A not-for-profit charity approved another foster carer, and two more potential foster carers are invited to apply. Furthermore, after the recent Step-Down campaign, three approved foster carers have come forward to enquire into transferring over to a Not for Profit Charity. I am delighted as these foster carers have amazing skills and experiences in caring for children and will make a positive difference in the lives of children.

Verve recruit foster carers for Not for Profit Fostering Charities and Agencies.

Did you know that over 38% of children in the care system are older children and teenagers. Sadly, they are the most challenging age range of children of which foster carers seem willing to take.

Also, the most needed types of foster carers are Parent & Child foster carers, Siblings groups, older children and teenagers and Step Down Care foster carers.

I have written blogs on all of the types of foster care below, just click on the image and it will lead you there…

Our foster carers testimonials

‘A leaflet had been posted through my door from Verve Recruitment. The flyer said that Verve recruit foster carers only for Not for Profit fostering charities, and it immediately grabbed my attention. I wanted my fostering journey to be about the children and young people, not about who benefits financially. I telephoned Val, and I immediately knew from talking with her that now was the ‘right time’, and also with the ‘right people’ for me to embark on my journey’.


Verve recruitment agency is a very supportive service for carers! It was the start of our fostering journey, and Verve provided us with invaluable advice and guidance about fostering agencies out there. It was because of Verve that we were able to choose a non-profit fostering agency, and this has been the best decision we could have made. We haven’t looked back since!

I contacted Val through a Facebook campaign, and I was impressed by the fact she only used the charitable foster agencies/charitable purpose. She did this because they thought about placements and matching rather than “Beds for Heads. ”The recruitment process was lovely, like talking to a friend, chatting to see if fostering, is something that you’re really looking to do now. When that’s done Verve looks for the agency who will be the best fit for your situation, wants and area and who can best support you.
