With over 40 years of recruitment experience the Directors of NRS Foster Care Recruitment have developed a dedicated specialist division recruiting quality Foster Carers for the Pubic Sector.
We are not a fostering agency but we pride ourselves on working in partnership with Local Authorities to provide solutions and cost savings in key areas of Children Services.
We have worked within the Social Care Sector for many years and have a good understanding of the needs of this diverse and rapidly changing area.
In late 2012 we began working with one Local Authority to recruit Foster Carers and over the following 12 month period provided them with in excess of 50 carers who were approved by their Foster Care panel.
We dispelled the myth that it took 12 months to become a foster carer, and we can and do achieve this within 12 weeks.
There are many benefits to growing your in house team of foster carers, this does provide you with greater control, cost saving efficiency’s and allows you to plan more effectively for the future.
NRS Foster Care Recruitment works in line with all the Fostering regulations and with BAAF standards and any Borough specifics ie: if you had your own Safer Caring policy you wanted NRS Foster Care recruitment to adopt for foster care panel or you wanted photographic profiles to bring prospective applicants to life for the fostering panel. We will work to meet your specific needs.
Having worked within London and the Home Counties for a number of years we have a good understanding of each Borough’s diversity and have tested a number of methods to attract different ethnic groups to meet the needs of the Looked After Children population.
We listen to the needs of the client and take the time to understand where you may have gaps and/or mismatching of children and young people to Foster Carers and will target those key areas in order to try and re-address this balance.
It has been found that many Local Authorities have a generic need for fostering households as a whole and as this need is met they then require specific areas to be targeted.
We provide a complete and comprehensive package from marketing campaign, initial enquiry, assessment and presentation to fostering panel. Please contact one of the Directors Marcus or Jill Valenti to discuss your requirements and to book an initial meeting with us. We look forward to hearing from you.
