“We will never lose sight of what really matters. We’ll be ambitious for the children in our care and we will all go the extra mile to support our highly valued foster carers. We’re all in it, together.” - Simon Lockyer, CEO.
Back in 2005, when Blue Sky was established by Simon and colleague, Jonathan, the vision was of a fostering agency with a difference, offering foster carers quality training, flexible support and camaraderie. By providing our foster carers with these solid foundations and giving them confidence in their ability, Simon and Jonathan knew we would ensure the best possible outcomes for vulnerable children and young people in our care.
Since then, from a modest office in the heart of Hampshire’s New Forest, Blue Sky has developed and matured into one of the south’s leading independent foster care providers. Covering a region from Kent to Cornwall and up to the Cotswolds. Our local ‘hubs’ provide easily accessible support, training and meeting venues for all our foster carers, their families, and the children and young people living with them.
Simon and the leadership team continue to steer Blue Sky and, together with a much valued and respected team of staff, haven’t lost sight of their early vision.
