Our Mission – Aims, Objectives and Values

Our Aims

Acorn aims to provide foster care placement services of the very highest quality to Local Authorities, and in so doing promote the best interests of looked after children and young people.

We aim to give every child or young person, who cannot live with their family of origin, a chance to experience stable family life.

Our Objectives

Our objective is to recruit and train, to a very high standard, sufficient numbers of foster carers to meet Local Authority demand for high quality, local foster care placements.

Our Core Values

At Acorn, “helping to rebuild young lives” is at the heart of everything we try to do – it is a role we have taken on with passion and commitment. We believe every child should have the opportunity to explore life, to make mistakes, to learn and to grow in a safe, secure family environment. READ our Statement of Purpose.
