The Fostering Network Charter

I am pleased to announce our decision to go with the Fostering Network Charter.
After consultation with all carers and supervising social workers across all six regions those that responded voted that they are happy to go with the Fostering Network Charter (see attached) –
A charter is an agreement between a placing authority in their role as corporate parent, a fostering service and foster carers that sets out each party’s roles and responsibilities. They can help foster carers to get the recognition they deserve and need, to provide children with the best possible care. Charters represent an important step towards foster carers being treated and respected as the professionals that they are.
