Tell us why you foster for Birmingham!

Closed 22 Apr 2018

Opened 5 Apr 2018


From April 1st 2018 Birmingham Children’s Social Care formally became Birmingham Children’s Trust!  As part of this move we have made a commitment to work closer with our foster carers, to engage with you more and to ask for your views to improve what we do.

Birmingham uses both internal foster carers like yourselves and external foster carers from agencies to place our children and young people.  We would like to increase our number of internal fosters carers so we can have a closer relationship with them.  We have many children to care for, so increasing our internal carers would not change your fostering position.  We would like to learn from your experiences to support others. 

We would also like to look at increasing our use of social media, so we are asking you a few questions about your communication perferences. 

This is the first of opportunity of many moving forward when we will be seeking your views and feedback.  The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and closes on Sunday 22nd April.  It is anonymous so no one will know what individuals have said. 

Thank you for your support and help.
