To improve the potential foster carer recruitment process

The problem

• Local Authorities can’t recruit enough foster carers – there is a particular problem recruiting foster carers who are willing to look after children with more complex needs.

• Local Authorities compete against Independent Fostering Agencies (IFAs) to attract foster carers. These organisations work regionally and tend to have far better contact and fulfilment processes

• Potential Foster carers tend to shop around – the organisation that can engage with them effectively and timely will be more appealing and increase successful recruitment
