Parent & Child Fostering

June 25, 2015 by  

Can you help a family stay together?

Warwickshire Fostering Service is keen to find new parent and child assessment foster carer placements. Parents, particularly young mothers, who are unable to meet their child’s most basic needs and protect them, sometimes need a nurturing family environment where they can be supported in looking after their baby or young child.

Parent and child foster placements may help a family to stay together and provide a positive alternative to residential care, which can be expensive and isolating. Potential foster carers provide both practical and emotional support to help the parent to develop the skills required to meet their own and their child’s needs. Once the parent has successfully completed an assessment within their fostering placement, they are then supported to live independently with their child.

People who have had some childcare experience or have raised children of their own would be ideal foster carers for a parent and child due to the life skills involved in this type of fostering. Full training and support is given to foster carers, who are matched to one or more of the different foster care schemes, depending on what suits their lifestyles and commitments. Carers are paid an allowance which reflects the real cost of looking after a child.

The Parent and Child Assessment Arrangement project is currently looking to recruit 5 foster families who can meet the needs of these placements.

Consultation on WCC’s budget

October 29, 2013 by  

Let’s Talk – Questions with the Leader

Cllr Izzi Seccombe, Leader of Warwickshire County Council, is inviting residents to come and talk to her about the scale of the financial challenge faced by the local authority over the next four years.

Let’s Talk, the council’s programme of public engagement about the budget, has taken to the road and will be coming to a town near to you over the next couple of days.  This gives a chance for Cllr Seccombe, Deputy Leader Cllr Alan Cockburn and members of Cabinet to meet people and find out what they think about the unprecedented savings of £92 million the council has to make by 2018.

The roadshows complement the online budget calculator at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/letstalk which will be live until 31 October. A paper version of this exercise will be available at each roadshow and distributed through county venues giving more people a chance to make suggestions about how they would make the savings.

Anyone unable to attend a roadshow can email letstalk@warwickshire.gov.uk.

For more information go to www.warwickshire.gov.uk/shapingthefuture.

Shire Hall session

Cllr Seccombe and Cllr Cockburn are also hosting a special session this week to tell local people more about the financial challenges faced by the council.

 

The event will take place from 6pm – 8pm this Wednesday 30 October at Shire Hall.  It is also a chance for the public to ask the councillors questions and find out more about some of the difficult decisions which will have to be made.

 

The event at Shire Hall is limited to 120 places and can be booked here http://warwickshirecountycouncil.eventbrite.co.uk.
