Careers

Panel Members

Location: Herefordshire

Family Fostering Partners are looking to appoint new panel members to our England Panel to attend meetings at our Leominster Offices. Due to the current situation we may also hold Panels online.

The fostering Panel provides independent oversight of the recruitment, assessment and review of foster carer’s and makes reasoned decisions on their suitability to foster.

Applicants should have experience either professionally, personally or both, of the placement of children in adoptive or foster families, or of children being cared for away from their birth family.

We are especially looking to recruit the following people:

  • People who have grown up in foster care or residential care

Good listening and communication skills are essential. You will also need to be able to analyse the written and oral information presented to the panel in order to discuss and make decisions in a balanced and informed manner.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all employees to share this commitment and undertake appropriate checks.

Family Fostering Partners values equality and diversity across our workforce and aims to ensure our staff is reflective of the diversity of the children and young people within our care. In support of this commitment we welcome applications from individuals of Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds.
