Our approach to fostering children

Fostering Placement Services

All of our placements are made in accordance with the Fostering Services Regulations. All our Foster Carers are approved and have a signed foster care agreement that is regularly reviewed.

We have contractual arrangements with a number of consortia and Local authorities including Eastern Region Four (Essex, Suffolk, Thurrock, Cambridge), West London Alliance (6 West London Boroughs), Norfolk County Council, London Care Placements (Pan London) and Kent County Council.  In addition we receive referrals from many other authorities on a spot purchase basis.

All our placements are planned and therefore a great deal of pre-placement planning is undertaken including introductory visits, file reading when possible and discussions with previous carers/schools.

We ensure the racial, cultural and linguistic needs of children are attended to and consideration is given to their gender and sexuality when making placement decisions.

We ensure that our Foster Carers homes comply with health and safety requirements. Safeguarding children in our placements is of paramount importance. To this end a safer care plan specific to the child in place is agreed and we have robust procedures to review and monitor the welfare and safeguarding of children in our care.
