The application process is thorough in order to ensure that children are offered the best standard of care and that carers are fully prepared for the role they are undertaking. Below is a summary of the recruitment process but full details can be found in our Foster Carer Recruitment policy.
Potential carers can make an initial enquiry to Oak Fostering via the phone, email or using the Oak Fostering website. This enquiry will be responded to promptly by a supervising social worker and details of the discussion will be recorded on an Initial Enquiry Form. If following this initial enquiry, it is considered that the basic requirements are met then an initial visit will be arranged.
