I am interested – what do I have to do?
We’re really pleased you want to take it
further and the next step is getting in touch by calling us on
01234 718718 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We will have a chat with you, ask some
questions and take your details. We’ll then arrange for an Initial
Visit to take place; a Social Worker will come to your house to
discuss fostering in more detail and answer any questions you might
have. At this stage, we will also carry out the statutory checks
that are required.
The next stage is completing an application
form and starting the assessment process. You will be expected to
attend Skills to Foster training, which will give you a more
in-depth understanding of fostering. This will then progress onto a
full and comprehensive assessment of you and your family, which
normally lasts 4-6 months.
Once this is complete, we will present your
case to panel, where recommendations will be made for approval.
Finally, once you are approved, you’ll have
your first placement.
We’re really keen to hear from you, so please
