Panel Chairperson

We are looking for a Fostering Panel chair to attend monthly Panel Meetings at our offices in Leicester. 

The fostering panel provides independent oversight of the recruitment, assessment and review of foster carer’s and makes reasoned decisions on their suitability to foster.

Applicants should have experience professionally of the placement of children in adoptive or foster families or of children being cared for away from their birth family. Good listening and communication skills are essential along with the ability to make an assessment based on the written and oral information presented to the panel in order to discuss and make decisions in a balanced and informed manner. We are specifically looking to recruit a social work professional with experience in chairing and managing meetings. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all employees to share this commitment and undertake appropriate checks.
