Work to enhance recruitment of Foster Cares has progressed internally with a specific Foster Care recruitment project which has led to the development of a new marketing, recruitment and retention strategy. Progress is also being made on a regional level.
Fostering in Conwy has been re-branded, with new imagery, booklets, web pages, social media channels and promotional videos. It is hoped that the new campaign will attract 15 new Foster Carers annually.
Regionally, there have been developments around sharing capacity across the region, particularly around marketing, recruitment, assessment, agreement around fee structures, and support for Connected Persons (A relative, friend or other person connected with a child. The latter is someone who would not fit the term ‘relative or friend’, but who has a pre-existing relationship with the child.”)
