Guide: The fostering process

Fostering Panel

We work closely with you over a number of weeks to ensure that we have a clear, accurate and detailed assessment that feeds into a final report for our Fostering Panel.

You will attend a panel meeting with your social worker to clarify any last questions you or they may have.

The panel makes a recommendation that goes to a senior manager (decision maker) for consideration and, ultimately, approval or not.  Once approved, you will be registered as a foster carer.
