Outcomes First Group has been approved as a Fostering Friendly Employer, demonstrating our commitment to support any member of staff who is also a foster carer.
The scheme, founded by the Fostering Network, helps employers to support the roles of their employees who foster, enabling them to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children, whilst also acknowledging and supporting employees at the same time.
We recognise and value the contribution that foster carers make to society and especially to children in care.
We understand that foster carers need flexibility in their working arrangements in order to meet the needs of their fostered child and we have a Fostering Friendly HR policy in place for all foster carers in their employment with us. This includes offering carers paid time off for training and settling a new child into their home.
We are proud to be a fostering friendly organisation and are dedicated to working with all our employees to best meet their and their child’s needs.
