The Fostering Network is the UK’s leading fostering charity. By working with foster families, and the services that support them, we help all children and young people who are fostered to achieve the very best they can.

Applicants should be qualified social workers with a background in childcare and a good working knowledge of fostering policies, procedures and practice, especially those relating to allegations against foster carers.

The role is subject to satisfactory checks and references including a DBS check. In order to fulfil the role, the applicant must have availability during the daytime in order to attend meetings, reviews and panel meetings with foster carers.
