OUTSTANDING Ofsted report – West Midlands!

What an incredible achievement.

In any OFSTED-regulated school, nursery, IFA, charity, or government body inspections are there to ensure the establishment is acting consistently for the benefit of those who rely on their services, across multiple facets of how that service is delivered.

It can be daunting and it can be challenging.

However, every inspection aims to provide confidence and reassurance in well-oiled practices, highlight areas that can be improved and safeguarding those that are working with establishments that may be failing to meet the expectations set when registered.

It’s all about ensuring we are providing to the best of our abilities.

Our West Midlands office caters for our largest proportion of carers and therefore, lots of families rely on our services to excel in their fostering careers. To receive the acknowledgement that after such turbulent times (and the tough times to come), we are not only maintaining our standards of care but exceeding them.

The registered manager and staff team are committed to developing and supporting the foster carers to provide outstanding care that improves the lives of the children. The ethos of providing support to a child up to, and throughout, their adult life is at the heart of this agency.
