About The Fostering Network

The Fostering Network brings together those involved in the lives of fostered children, ensuring the very best care in supporting people who work to improve opportunities for young people, and providing expert guidance to all fostering services transforming children’s lives.

The Challenge

The Fostering Network required radical digital transformation of IT to optimise operation, fundraising and service delivery, eventually moving to a Software-as-a-Service basis while merging a long list of separate but interdependent systems.

The Solution

Introducing a virtual IT Manager and dedicated onsite IT support Engineer immediately bridged the gap between The Fostering Network’s vision for digital transformation and the technology roadmap and support required to deliver on it.

“The great benefit of working with Wanstor is our direct access to such a large pool of IT specialists within different disciplines giving us exceptional levels of support. The calibre of their technical team is exceptional.”
