become a foster carer!

Fostering Panel

You will be invited to the Fostering Panel where your social worker will present your assessment to them, and they will make a recommendation as to your suitability as a prospective foster carer. It is a formal meeting where the case for you to become foster carers will be made jointly by you and your assessor. The fostering panel is not intended to make you feel anxious, but we know from experience that most applicants still do all the same! The fostering panel will consider your application to foster and will make a decision whether or not to recommend you. You will be told the decision at that meeting.
