Foster Care Associates, the UK’s biggest fostering agency have relocated to larger offices after having signed a new 10 yr lease of a 3 storey office building at 9 West Links, Tollgate Business Park, Chandlers Ford that was being marketed by Keygrove Chartered Surveyors. The 2,753 sq ft office building is air conditioned and benefits from 11 car parking spaces.
Richard Bryan of Foster Care Associates says “Tollgate is a perfect location for our business as we work all over the country and the motorway, railway station and airport are all within close proximity. Since being founded in 1994, FCA has grown to become the largest independent fostering agency in the UK. We currently support over 2,500 fostering households looking after over 2,600 children and young people. We are the UK’s local fostering agency with over 50 offices across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This means that our regional teams provide support and training that is both local and convenient for all our carers.”
Andrew Archibald, Director of Keygrove Chartered Surveyors says “Good quality well located offices are becoming increasingly hard to find as the economy improves and particularly as government policy has been to encourage conversion of offices into residential use. Tollgate Business Park is a very popular business location with excellent access to both the M3 & M27 motorways.”
FCA is part of a group of companies called Core Assets that provide fostering and children’s services all over the world. They currently support foster carers in Canada, USA, Ireland, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Keygrove Chartered Surveyors was marketing on behalf of Case & Case Property.
