Though Shine has only been registered as an agency since March 2013 we have made significant headways and are very proud of our achievments. We received a full inspection within nine months and received a GOOD for our first inspection. The inspector said, “Leaders have aspirations for children and this helps to drive progress. There is a motivated staff team who have skills and experience to provide an EXCELLENT service”

We have links with the Midlands and continue to grow our Fostering base of carers.

We have a number of carers from diverse backgrounds and have more recently built strong links with the Lithuanian, Eritrean and Polish links. As an east London Agency we appreciate the importance of matching of our children and feel it is key to build good strong links with fostering families from all backgrounds.

Our fostering team are supported by the WRAP around team and we are fortunate to have many links with independent consultants. Please see our website for support provided to our carers and children.
