First4Adoption mentioned in National Fostering Stocktake

6 February 2018

The Department for Education today published the National Fostering Stocktake an independent review of foster care in England, conducted by Sir Martin Narey and Mark Owers.  The report makes 36 recommendations to the government about how the outcomes of children in foster care can be improved.

It also recognises the work of First4Adoption and suggests how the service could be expanded to help potential foster carers :

“We believe it would be a better use of investment if the current front door for adopter recruitment, First4Adoption (F4A) with its successful track record including a Public Service Award in 2015, and high levels of user satisfaction, became a first point of enquiry for both adoption and fostering”.
