FtSE Member News: Community Foster Care - Foster agency gets Ofsted’s ‘good’ rating, Gloucester Citizen
OFSTED has awarded a Staunton-based fostering agency a good rating in its latest inspection.
Community Foster Care provides professional foster care for children in Gloucestershire.
After his visit, Ofsted inspector Paul Clark said the firm provided “a good level of care for children and young people who report that they feel safe and well cared for”.
He awarded ‘good’ ratings in four categories: outcomes for children, quality of service, safeguarding and leadership.
He singled out the hands-on support which support workers provided children with good therapeutic care and a large range of community activities.
“Consultation forums for young people give them a voice in service provision and development”, he said.
Chief executive of Community Foster Care Hugh Pelham, pictured, said: “We pride ourselves on the level of support we provide to both carers and children and to our family ethos. It’s good to see that recognised from the highest regulatory authority.”
