    One of foster carers has shared with us their experience of the fostering assessment process.

    "Just wanted to say thank you again for guiding us through the fostering assessment process with Northamptonshire County Council.

    There are many misconceptions that may stop people enquiring about fostering – I would urge anyone to speak to the team as you never know until you ask!

    We found the process logical and the discussions we had with our assessing social worker really helped us to understand if fostering is right for us.

    We found our social worker took us through the process incredibly well. She treated us with respect, answered our questions and explained everything in detail.

    The support and advice through the application process and attending the introductory courses was invaluable to help us to understand what is involved in our role as Foster Carers. The preparation training was fun and informative – it rarely felt like “learning” even though we learnt so much.

    The Fostering Panel were also a very friendly group of people who made us feel welcome. We were delighted to be approved and now, very much, enjoying caring for our recent child placed with us.”
