About the Group
We are part of National Fostering Group.
Our highly skilled and dedicated fostering community supports Local Authorities by providing short or long-term foster placements for thousands of vulnerable children and teenagers throughout the UK. With 100% of our 28 regional fostering agencies officially recognised by Ofsted, Welsh and Scottish regulators as either ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’, it is perhaps not surprising that more people choose to foster with our fostering agencies than any other fostering provider in the UK.
As a self employed sessional support worker you will need experience of working with children and young people and an interest in their welfare. Effective interpersonal and communication skills are also vital. An enhanced DBS will be required for the role together with a full driving licence and the use of a car.
As a Sessional support worker you may be required to provide transport, plan activities or support individuals. You will have the ability to work independently and as part of a team. We require a flexible approach to working hours and range of duties you will undertake.
We offer a competitive hourly rate and mileage allowance.
If you have experience of working with children and families are interested in supporting children fostering placements we would like to hear from you.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all employees to share this commitment and undertake appropriate checks.
