Watch the Introduction
We share a passion for helping young people succeed
and reach their goals. Watch our introduction below:
At Ascent, we believe that a large part of fostering is the ability to see the value in everyday experiences that so many children sadly miss out on:
Teaching a child how to flip a pancake, tie their shoelace or water the plants.
Rehearsing their times tables with them.
Showing an interest in what they are playing on the computer or watching on TV.
Helping a child to trust that a hug can be safe and feel good.
Our values make us different
We believe that children and young people can and will succeed in life with the right support, nurturing and guidance.
“Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a hidden crime . . .people don’t want to talk about it”, says Kendra Houseman…
Our latest campaign asks the question ‘Is there room in your heart for one more?’ Fostering is so much more…
Want to know more about fostering?
Simply put, fostering is looking after someone else’s child temporarily whilst social services work with the family to resolve the issues that have led the child to be taken into care. In the UK each day many children enter the care system. This can be for a day, a week or years. Foster carers support children and young people at the most difficult and vulnerable time of their lives.
