02We need to meet you
If we decide that fostering could be right for you, one of our team of social workers will come and see you at home. We’ll try and arrange this within ten days of your first contact.
During the assessment process you’ll receive regular visits from your social worker, we’ll build a picture of your strengths and abilities and we’ll explore the type of fostering that will suit you and your family best.
Your training will give you the practical day-to-day skills needed for when you take your first child. You’ll get to meet experienced foster carers, young care leavers, fostering professionals and other prospective foster carers going through the process.
A final report will go to our fostering panel and you’ll attend a panel meeting with your social worker. A recommendation will be made to a senior manager for consideration and, ultimately, approval or not.
