The Fostering Assessment

Further Information

Important Notice

At any stage of the assessment, there may be delays or setbacks depending on the information available to the people reviewing the assessment at that time. This may lead to the assessment being put on hold, being put back to a previous stage and/or the assessment could be terminated.

If the assessment is terminated after it has been allocated to a social worker, and the applicants disagree with the outcome, Sparks Fostering can signpost the applicant to the ‘Independent Reviewing Mechanism’, which gives an independent impartial view about decisions to terminate assessments.
