We continually strive to provide the very best fostering services to babies, children and young people. The high quality standards we have in place are stringently upheld by our experienced and committed teams of care professionals.
Our Safeguarding & Quality Committee provides assurance to the Board of Directors that robust and effective systems are in place. The team includes colleagues with social work, local authority, residential and teaching experience, and two previous Ofsted inspectors.
Our Quality and Compliance team ensures our Fostering services consistently exceed the requirements set out in legislation, national minimum standards and statutory guidance in relation to safeguarding those in our care.
Our Group Education Support Officer provides a point of contact for all colleagues and foster parents who require advice and support for a child or young person in any of our educational and care settings. They work alongside foster parents, social workers, residential managers, schools and local authority agencies in order to intervene appropriately when supporting the continued learning of our children and young people.
