We have extensive experience in carrying out Form F fostering assessments for a range of Local Authorities and Independent Fostering Agencies across the country. This experience ensures all prospective Foster Carers have been subject to rigorous assessment processes which safeguard vulnerable young people once in placement. Our assessors comply with the National Minimum Standards and Adoption and Fostering regulations.
Through detailed assessment, we identify high quality Foster Carers who have the essential skills, attitudes, experience, empathy and commitment to providing a strong and nurturing environment for children and young people.
We have the requisite resources to complete both Stage 1 and Stage 2 reports should you require this, using the same assessor at both phases to provide consistency and support to applicants at a time of uncertainty and challenge.
We are aware that each agency manages the process for assessing and approving Foster Carers differently, so in order to provide a seamless service we prepare a “Nuance Document” for our social workers as guide to your requirements and expectations.
Our knowledgeable Case Handlers will build close working relationships with your teams to discuss the progress of statutory checks; provide regular updates as to the progress of the assessments; and immediately raise any concerns at the earliest opportunity for your consideration.
All of our assessments are Quality Assured by our dedicated in house team; for spelling, grammar and content to ensure that the Form F is submitted to you panel ready within a 12 week timescale.
