Cuffe and Lacey are a newly established Independent Fostering Agency with lots of experience behind us. Our directors have over 80 years combined experience in fostering and our service manager has over 20 years. We want to use our skills to make a difference to children’s lives.  

What is an Independent Fostering Agency?

Independent Fostering Agency’s, often referred to as IFAs, are private organisations, separate to the Local Authority. We work closely with Local Authorities to provide placements for children. All IFA’s and Local Authority’s are inspected and regulated by Ofsted.  

We have 3 core values that we try to work towards in everything that we do:


Providing the best possible homes for children who need them, and developing strong
relationships with our foster carers so that they feel confident in their role.


We want our children and foster carers to have their voices heard. We will always reach out to you and are there whenever you need us


We want to positively affect the lives of the young people we help. We will always fight for the best outcomes for them and our carers
