Foster carers are susceptible to allegations and/or complaints that impact on the whole fostering household and their future as caregivers. This course will look at how professionals respond to these situations in a sensitive and timely manner, whilst giving due regard to the safeguarding of children as well as the needs of carers and their household. This course will also look at the process for distinguishing standards of care concerns from allegations or complaints, with opportunities to consider good practice in recruiting, reviewing, and supporting foster carers.

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  1. Focus practice on safeguarding the child through the consideration of existing agency protocol
  2. Consider the importance of panel, supervision, and foster carers reviews in the monitoring of the needs of the child/young person and the capacity of foster carers to meet these needs
  3. Consider the legislative framework and best practice in managing allegations and monitoring standards of care
  4. Be familiar with the process for distinguishing standards of care concerns from allegations or complaints and the threshold for allegations/complaints and addressing practice concerns going to panel
  5. Have identified ways of managing risk in foster care in order to reduce and minimise safeguarding concerns
  6. Consider the importance of positive relationships between foster carers, professionals, and the fostering service that includes developing and sharing good practice as well as addressing concerns in a timely way

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
