INITIAL VISIT

After you enquire with us. we’ll arrange for one of our qualified team members to come to your home to Visit with you and your family.

We will discuss:

  • Who Hope fostering are and how services to you
  • your family and background
  • experiences you may have
  • what fostering is and your understanding of fostering
  • The types of fostering and the children that come into care
  • Questions you may have.

While we are there, we will take a tour of your house to see if there are any health and safety concern and to view outdoor spaces. We will also view the intended room or rooms for fostering. The visit usually takes around 2 hours.

A decision is usually made by the end of the next working day as to whether we would move forward into assessment.
