Fostering with us
The team at Swiis are here to provide you with the best possible support along the way to ensure you can carry out your role with confidence.
From on-going, comprehensive training and expert supervision to a unique matching system and the security of being part of the extended Swiis family, our carers feel valued and well-rewarded for the incredible role they play.
We put children and young people at the heart of everything we do.
Our entire organisation is designed to provide exceptional support to our foster carers and our looked after children and young people. We ensure that our carers are supported at every stage of their fostering journey, from their first contact with Swiis through to their first placement and every day afterwards.
Every carer is assigned a Supervising Social Worker who will spend as much time as is required to support them in every way possible. Our carers have 24 hour per day, seven days a week access to our Social Work team as Swiis are genuinely with our carers every step of the way. Comprehensive training is also available to every carer to equip them with the skills and confidence to apply themselves positively to the fostering role.
It is our ultimate aim to make a genuine difference to the lives of children placed with Swiis and we recognise that this can only be achieved by providing unprecedented levels of support to our carers.
We ensure that our carers feel valued and well-rewarded.
“I find Swiis very supportive. The staff are polite, friendly and professional and make me feel part of the Swiis community. The Skills for Fostering training I attended was very useful because it gave me an insight into the practicality of fostering, and the many courses I’ve attended have fully equipped me for the task. I am happy I chose Swiis and I would strongly recommend Swiis to anyone.”
