  • Encouraging people to think about fostering as a career and answers their questions about the process
  • Clarifying recruitment criteria and finance/support/training issues
  • Enabling prospective foster carers to identify fostering services in their area, using the web based mapping facility
  • Providing a facility for fostering services to advertise their forthcoming foster carer recruitment events for a nominal fee
  • Clarifying regulations, guidance and national minimum standards about fostering and signposting to other sources of specialist support
