Sali Walker, Business Director of Brighter Futures Foster Care Ltd “Justina Gay and I have always focused on providing our carers with the very best support since we set the agency up in 2007.  During that time, together with our team, we have always aimed to make a real difference to the children and young people in our care and it was extremely important to us that Brighter Futures joined an organisation whose value sets were not only similar to ours, but whose culture provided our carers and staff with an environment where they would be valued and feel comfortable.” 

Iain Anderson, Group Chief Executive for NFA said “I am delighted Justina and Sali made the decision to join NFA Group.  Brighter Futures Foster Care Ltd has a great reputation and their approach mirrors NFA’s own proposition ‘children are the heart of everything we do’. I am sure that, together, we will continue to deliver exceptional outcomes for the children and young people.”

Going forward, Brighter Futures Foster Care Ltd will continue to operate under its own Ofsted registration and joining NFA Group’s family of agencies will provide Brighter Future foster carers and customers with the extended range of support services, training and innovation for which NFA is well known.
