Bestport supports Management Buy-Out of leading independent fostering agency Affinity Fostering Services

Affinity EFS Group

Bestport has backed the management team of high quality independent fostering agency Affinity Fostering Services (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) in a buyout of the business from the founding owner. Bestport is familiar with the sector through an existing investment in another agency, Eastern Family Services (EFS).

The two agencies have been combined into one group company but will continue to operate as separate brands.

Bestport Partner Ole Bettum has joined the board as Chairman to support and advise the management team going forward

I am delighted to have backed the Affinity team and supporting their growth ambitions for the business going forward in this attractive sector of the care market.
