Our fostering service is rated Good by Ofsted

Fostering and Adoption team

Ofsted, the government office for standards in education, children's services and skills, found Together for Children's independent fostering agency to be good.

The Ofsted report for fostering states that:

  • Children and young people are in stable placements with foster carers who are committed to providing nurturing and effective care.
  • Children and young people are attending and achieving in their educational settings.
  • Healthcare needs are identified and met. Foster carers are making use of support structures to enhance the emotional health and wellbeing of the children and young people in their care.
  • Foster carers are supervised regularly and feel well supported by the agency. There is an increased offer of support groups and opportunities for reflection on practice.

The report also details that foster carers act as positive role models, noting in one case, that their work ethic had transferred to a particularly tenacious young person.
