Can I combine fostering with working outside of the home?

 
A.

The key requirement is that you are sufficiently available. In practice, you need to be available as follows:

  • At the start and end of each school day to support the child's access to school
  • Whenever the child is off school due to holidays, illness, exclusion or any other reason
  • To meet with the social workers involved with the child during office hours
  • To periodically attend local foster carer training events during office hours
  • To support the child to attend any day time appointments that they may need to attend.
  • To attend  other day time meetings

We aim to be as flexible around things as possible, while being sufficiently clear about the  minimum requirements.  If you are unsure whether you have sufficient availability, please contact one of our recruitment advisers and we will be happy to answer your queries
