We are Outstanding for a third time!October 19, 2015
Fostering People Too has just been awarded an Outstanding rating by Ofsted for the third time running. Manager Brendan Warner commented “It has proved an eventful year having just celebrated the tenth birthday of the agency, moving premises and now to receive such positive feedback from Ofsted is the icing on the cake”
Like many social care providers fostering services are highly regulated and are regularly inspected by Ofsted and local authorities that use them.
The week long Ofsted inspection focused on five key areas: experiences and progress of, and outcomes for, children and young people, quality of service, safeguarding children and young people, leadership and management and in each Fostering People Too was considered outstanding.
Julie Smart a foster carer with the agency said “There is a great team spirit at Fostering People Too with a strong focus on getting it right for the children and young people we care for. Fostering can be really challenging at times but it also brings many rewards. I feel so well supported by everyone at the agency it has boosted my confidence and skills enormously”
Brendan Warner said “Although inspections can be a bit nerve racking it is right that whatever we do is subject to scrutiny. Children and young people’s lives are too precious so it is vital we always go the extra mile”
