Keeping children safe is at the heart of all we do. This is why every child placed with Mosaic will have a Safeguarding Case Review at least every 3 months, and more often when required. The Safeguarding Case Reviews act as a live risk assessment considering the child’s strengths and vulnerabilities along with their current risk rating.
The reviews are attended by the team of professionals working with the foster child. As the key professional caring for the foster child, the foster carer in central to these reviews. Other professionals will include your social worker, the child’s social worker, the school, therapists and support worker. The meetings are chaired by one of our Safeguarding officers.
Every child placed with Mosaic receives an allocated support worker at the start of placement who will help them develop skills for life and improve their confidence and self-esteem. Children will also be invited to join one of our clubs where they can develop peer relations and work on their social skills while sharing in new experiences.
Your foster child will also be allocated designated respite carers so that any periods of respite can be planned well in advance with introductions beforehand. Mosaic respite is like an extension of your own family.
All our children receive a therapy assessment at the start of placement, which is then followed by weekly therapy sessions. The main objectives of these sessions is to help the child understand and recover from early life trauma. The therapist will also provide the foster carer ongoing clinical supervision to explore the impact of fostering and reflect on parenting experiences.
