Another Positive Quarter for the Fostering Service

A report to the next Corporate Parenting Panel 20 December 2018 at CBC concludes that the Fostering Service has provided another positive quarter for the Service.

"Whilst a relatively low number of carers have been approved in this financial year, thus far, there are a high number in assessment which should support the service in meeting its recruitment target in this area. Other performance data for the service is good and provides a good indication that foster carers are providing a high standard of care to the children placed with them, that children are well matched and supported in local resources and that outcomes for them are good."

The Children Act 2004, Care Standards Act 2000 and associated relevant Regulations and National Minimum Standards require the Local Authority Fostering Service to report to Council Members regularly on the activities of the Service.
