St Christopher’s is currently looking for new members to join our fostering panel, to help us assess new carers hoping to join our fostering service.
The ideal panel member would currently be a foster carer, or have recent experience of fostering, with the desire to use their experience to help influence the quality of care given to vulnerable children.
Our panel meets monthly, usually on the last Wednesday, and occasionally Tuesday, of each month, from 1.00pm to approximately 5.30pm. Travelling expenses and a fee of £100 are paid to each member attending a panel meeting. As we are hoping to build up a pool of panel members, depending on your skills or experience, you may not be asked to attend every month.
If you join our panel, you will receive all the papers at least five working days before a panel and will be expected to read and prepare yourself before the meeting.
The essential requirements of this role are:
Fostering Panel Adviser
St Christopher’s Fellowship
1 Putney High Street

News stories and job vacancies from our member agencies, the fostering sector and the world of child protection and safeguarding as a whole.
