You and your social worker will work with each other to complete a Form F assessment. This part of the assessment will help us to identify whether you and your partner, if you're making a joint application, are suitable to be approved as a foster carer and to agree the types of fostering you will be approved for.
During the assessment you’ll work alongside us to help us capture, in the Form F, why you would be a good foster parent and how your current family and the environment you live in will help to improve the lives of children and young people who may be placed in your care.
There will be a number of planned meetings in your home or via an online video chat that will provide the opportunity to gather and share information. It will give you the chance to find out more about becoming a foster carer and the role you will play in building brighter futures for children and young people.
If you want to find out more about starting the assessment to become a foster carer, contact us today.
You can chat with us online and you can get the answers to your questions immediately.
