Why Choose Unity Foster Care?
Unity is a Fostering Agency which has been established with the aim of achieving the highest standards and outcomes for the children in our care. We recognise that to achieve this, not only do we have to provide high standards of support to out Foster Carers, but we have to practice in a way which sets us apart from the other agencies. In practice this means honest open communications between all parties involved in delivering care for the young person. This can involve the need to challenge individuals whether carers, practitioners of the placing authorities to ensure we advocate on the young person’s behalf.
We believe are aims and standards have been recognised by Ofsted who have awarded the agency the grade of ‘Good’ across all areas of inspection. This is the highest award a fostering agency can get on its first inspection. We continue to strive towards achieving ‘Outstanding’ at the earliest opportunity which will be on our next inspection which won’t be due until 2020.
Due to our social workers having small caseloads and the small size of the agency, we aim to retain a ‘family feel’ where everyone knows each other. Although our standards are high, we aim to achieve these in a relaxed way.
We will make sure you know that the work you’re doing is important and that you feel valued and part of the team. We will also ensure the financial remuneration you receive reflects the level of care you are providing to the young people in your care.
We will provide you with exceptional training and support, as well as access to events. A member of our professional and friendly team will be on hand 24/7, 365 days a year, to support you when you need it.
You will also have a designated social worker who will be your main point of contact throughout the day and keep in regular contact with you and your family, as well as arranging any training you require.
We encourage all of our carers to come along and see us. The kettle’s always on!
