Foster carer survey 2019
The views of our foster carers is important to help us shape what we do moving forward. So we recently we asked our foster carers to complete a survey letting us know what they think about Foster Care Associates.
We have been overwhelmed by the responses and are happy to know our foster carers are pleased with the support, guidance and services we provide. So much so, 84% of our carers would recommend FCA to a friend or family member.
Overall the opinion of FCA is extremely positive, 85% of our foster carers said the training we offer helps them to work positively with children people. A staggering 90% of our foster carers felt confident dealing with child protection and bullying.
When it comes to social worker support, 90% of our foster carers thought their social worker was knowledgeable, and 92% felt they could discuss their own needs with their social worker.
We host a range of local and national events and activities for our foster carers, children and young people. They are a fantastic opportunity to meet other carers and families, and make new friends and catch up with old ones, 92% of our foster carers said they are encouraged to participate in events and activities
