Changes to the way we’re working

A joint recruitment and marketing service will launch in April 2018 for Cheshire West and Chester, Halton, Warrington and Cheshire East Council’s fostering services.

From the 1 April 2018 all fostering enquiries will be taken by a single team based in Warrington.

The new way of working aims to:

  • Increase the number of Local Authority foster carers across the four areas;
  • Increase the availability of placements to meet the needs of our looked after children;
  • Develop and support carers to enable the placement of sibling groups and older children;
  • Increase the frequency of training, information events and panels by sharing resources;
  • Reduce the time it takes new foster carers to reach assessment.
