Some exerpts from our July 2015 report:

"A major strength is the relationship between the fostering agency and foster carers. The model of care that the fostering agency seeks to promote are for 'forever families'."

"Children’s life chances significantly improve due to the care, support and protection they receive in loving and nurturing fostering families."

"Children’s diverse needs are well met by foster carers who are robustly recruited and well trained. Children benefit from majorly well informed carers..."

"The families are all supported to actively engage the children and young people in decision making about their current and future choices."

Some exerpts from our November 2015 report:

"Agency staff clearly understand the lifelong implications of adoption and maintain excellent relationships with adoptive families and young people."

"Adoptive families and staff regard the agency as a ‘family’ that is ‘always there when we need them’. One adopter, who has received adoption support from the agency said, ‘We have always found them excellent, they were very supportive when we fostered through them and the support has continued since we adopted’."

"The support provided to adopted young people and adults and their families is individualised and non-judgemental. The effectiveness of this adoption support is demonstrated by the fact that the agency has not experienced a breakdown of any its adoptive families since it was registered."
