New fostering inspection framework introduced

We are changing the way we inspect local authority fostering services and independent fostering agencies.

We will be using a new inspection framework the next time we inspect your service. It is important that you understand the changes and how they affect you.

What is different?

  • The new framework focuses on well-being outcomes;
  • Changes to inspection reports, making them more accessible and providing clearer conclusions about the quality of services;
  • All local authority fostering services and independent fostering agencies will be given notice prior to their inspection; and
  • The frequency of inspections will be every four years.
