The application process
Step 5 - fostering panel
The completed assessment is taken to a fostering panel for consideration.
The panel consists of a cross-section of people including professionals and those involved in fostering. They will read through your report and ask you and your fostering social worker some questions.
They will then make a recommendation to our Agency Decision Maker as to your suitability to foster who will make the final decision about your approval.
You will be informed of that decision about two weeks after the panel meeting.
