Speaker Biography

Jonathan Toomey

Jonathan has been involved in fostering for the majority of his life. His parents fostered many young people over a period of more than thirty years and in March 1989 set up Fostering Support Group (FSG), the second Independent Fostering Service to be established in the UK. Jonathan joined the family business in 1991, undertaking various roles while gaining practical experience and gaining management qualifications. From 2002 until 2007, Jonathan managed the operational component of this fostering service.
In April 2007, Jonathan established FosterCare UK and undertakes strategic planning and direction of the service. He specialises in business development, contracting and commissioning, partnership working and the setting of high service standards.

Jonathan has a great deal of experience in managing a highly reputable independent fostering service and during his many years in the independent sector has maintained good to outstanding Ofsted ratings. Jonathan states “that FosterCare UK is the distillation of his expertise, a fostering service that is built upon best practice, sound ethics, and an insistence on creating strong partnerships with Local Authorities that put children and young people at the centre of what they do”.
