Local authority referrals

Foster Care Partnerships was created specifically to help bridge the shortfall in the availability of suitable foster carers to meet the demands being placed on local authorities at a time of severe financial constraint. With our partnership approach to foster care, we are actively seeking to develop the breadth of the foster carer pool, widening the appeal of fostering to people of diverse backgrounds who have commitment, stable domestic environments and suitable accommodation.

We therefore welcome referrals from local authorities in London and the Home Counties responsible for placements that may arise from a variety of circumstances. Given essential information about the foster care placement candidate and their needs, we can undertake a rapid search of our registered foster carers and work with you and, as appropriate, our fostering panel to identify any potential match.

We are registered with Ofsted and, as established care service providers developed from London Care Solutions' long experience of working with children and young people, we and our team can offer the appropriate expertise and credentials that local authorities require. All our relevant official assessments and approvals are open to scrutiny by local authorities as are details of our fostering panel arrangements and insurance cover. Our growing number of local authority partners may be assured that our vetting, training and support for carers and our quality control arrangements have been designed to ensure the highest standards of care, from short-term emergency placements to long-term fostering.
