The Fostering Network



Staying safe

Protecting children from harm or neglect and helping them stay safe.

Child Protection and Safer caring training is given to our foster carers and staff as part of their core training to ensure they are aware of their roles and responsibilities in supporting children and young people and keeping them safe.

“Practice within the service was supported by regular protection training and policies and procedures aimed at ensuring safe caring”
Care Inspectorate  2013

We also work proactively to ensure foster carers have support to manage their feelings and the emotional responses arising from caring for children and young people. Foster carers also receive regularly updated training to help them to manage challenging behaviour.

Fostering households have safer caring policies that are specific to their families, reviewed on the placement of children and young people to ensure that they reflect the individual needs and requirements of those placed with them. We also ensure that individual risk assessments are in place for every child in foster care.

We were also impressed by the quality of individual risk assessments completed for each child and young person
Care Inspectorate  2013

We actively promote the safety and welfare of all out children and young people through direct work, when required, by our multi-disciplinary teams.
