Based in Croydon, Children of All Nations is an Ofsted-registered independent fostering agency that has been operational since 2004.
Working closely with local authorities, Children of All Nations looks to complement the existing fostering provision while also providing high-quality training for foster carers so that they can deliver the best possible support for the children and young people in their care.
Working in line with the five outcomes outlined in the government's “Every Child Matters” framework, it provides an essential placement service that helps safeguard and promote the welfare of the children and young people.
Employing skilled and experienced professionals from various disciplines in order to provide clinical expertise and knowledge, the agency offers placements and training from internal and external teachers.
Training sessions take place once a month to ensure all foster carers are up to date, while it also offers more specialist training for children and young people with specific needs.
Meanwhile, it employs a supervising social worker who speaks with all of the children in its care every four to six weeks, while also offering a 24-hour phone line for any concerns they may have.
Its experience panel of professionals is also there to assist new foster carers and help determine eligibility, as well as offering general day-to-day support.
Children of All Nations also offers one week's paid respite per year, in addition to regular support group meetings, annual reviews, financial support, social events, and a newsletter.
