FosterTalk is proud to deliver Fosterline on behalf of the Department for Education.
We are proud of the practical and innovative approach we take to working with foster carers and with fostering services.
We are open and honest in all our dealings with service users and aim to offer a flexible service, responsive to the needs of partner organisations and their foster carers. We listen to, and work closely with, foster carers promoting dialogue between the foster carer and their fostering service wherever possible. We understand the system in which they are working, and can offer them relevant advice, guidance and support aimed at resolving any issues there may be through discussion and debate rather than confrontation.
We are committed to exceeding the expectations of our customers and to continuous improvement in the quality, performance and delivery of all the services we offer. On-going evaluation and monitoring of quality standards ensures that FosterTalk has a team of committed professionals, dedicated to meeting service user’s needs.
FosterTalk works to a set of values and has a vision that are at the heart of how we provide services to foster carers. These values also represent the attitudes and behaviours that our staff are expected to demonstrate in their day-to-day work. Partnership working is at the core of these values and of the services we provide
FosterTalk aims to be recognised as the centre of excellence for foster care services. We are committed to support the recruitment of foster carers and support methods to help the retention of foster carers by providing better processes, training and support to both foster carers and fostering services. We aim to provide appropriate challenge to existing mind-sets and methods to enable alternative solutions that truly improve the welfare and opportunities for our children in care.
We recognize that the fostering journey is challenging and unique for every child and carer. We understand the importance of providing a service which is independent, welcoming, trusted and knowledgeable, treating all with dignity respect and equality.
Our services are delivered with heart as the “go to” for advice backed up by experience, empathy and care, driving for continual improvement, keeping the child at the centre of everything we do.
