WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
In 2014, more children and young people
have been accommodated into foster
placements, while less fostering
households were recruited.*
“We have the opportunity to pour into them what they were created to be; and pullout the treasure that they cannot yet see.
– Momma Moon, One Special Egg: The Journey Of Destiny And A Forever Fam
FOSTER CARERS TRANSFORM CHILDREN’S LIVES
Our goal is to help children find a home where they are cared for and supported.
Select Fostercare is an Independent Fostering Agency helping foster families at every step to care for a child. We are a team of forward-thinking individuals from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, working together with local authorities and other agencies to provide better outcomes for children.
HOW WE HELP
We believe every child should experience a rewarding childhood. We put children’s physical, emotional development and health needs first throughout our fostering process, providing 24/7 support to children and foster carers. We look after children coming from a diverse range of family backgrounds with specific care needs. These may change over time but the child’s welfare remains paramount.
We provide Foster Carers with a continual programme of training and access to NVQ training courses to develop their skills and understanding of the particular needs of “looked after” children.
This training programme will enhance the quality of care provided by the foster family, and the Foster Carer’s contribution to our “Team around the Child” approach to planning, delivery and reviewing processes, which we will put in place for each child.
We work closely with support workers to provide children and their foster carer with full time support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from an allocated Select Fostercare Support Social Worker and our out of hours duty team. Additionally, we provide planned support from our outreach workers for task centered work.
We provide opportunities that children and young people may not have had within their own families, ensuring that they are cared for and learn that they are valued and important. “It is the very ordinariness of a foster family life that gives it the power to make a positive difference to children’s lives.”– Jacky Slade, Safer Caring a new approach
