Foster Care Recruitment Services

PeoplePlus aim to do everything we can to enable people to live independently in their own homes and communities. We put people first. It is in our name, our ethos and our services.

What we offer:

Telephone call handling assessment

An advisor to screen the applicants as the first port of call. Responsible for all queries into the service.

Internet & Social Media

We will suggest ways of maximising the use of the council website to attract and progress the interest of potential foster carers. We will also consider the current use of social media embraced by the Council and PeoplePlus and how that can be tapped into and/or expanded. The call handling advisor can manage the interest and activity and messages.

Presence at local community events

We recommend having a presence at local shopping centres (road shows) and other locations where large numbers of the local population visit. This maximises engagement with the community and presents the opportunity to interact and encourage further marketing – the public would be encouraged to take away leaflets and posters to distribute and display.

Presentations/Informal sessions

With local groups who have a networking presence in the community.

Coffee mornings

We would assist in co-ordination and support.

DBS checks

We are registered with Disclosure Services for use of the electronic DBS checks to support a local authority to process a DBS for a candidate who has passed our screening, referred on and assessed as a suitable foster carer.

In April and May 2020 we are providing support to individuals in receipt of direct payments/personal health budgets in Cambridgeshire, Merthyr Tydfil and Newcastle.

Our telephone number for all services is: 0330 123 2815

It was a pleasure and joy to be involved in such a successful health event which I feel was very effective in enabling service users to gain information and raise awareness of the local services and support available for them. It was very well organised and run – so very well done!
