Fostering Assessment

The assessment is aimed at finding out more about those who wish to become carers.

At Regional Foster Placements we believe that the assessment is not just form filling, but an opportunity to find out more about your ideas of parenting, caring, and what support groups you may have.

The assessment will lay the foundation for you becoming a professional carer.

The major elements of the assessment process involve home and individual visits, health, police, and statutory reference checks, together with attendance at the “Skills to Foster” preparation course.

Once the assessment has been completed to the satisfaction of you and your reviewing social worker we will have gained a valuable insight into three main competences:

  • Caring for children
  • Working with birth families
  • Working as part of a team in the area of Child Care Knowledge and Skills
