Newcastle Fostering Service - Statement of Purpose

The Statement of Purpose is a source of information for the families, foster carers, and short break carers of children and young people cared for in foster placements. It's also for people thinking of becoming foster carers, and for staff within Wellbeing, Care and Learning Directorate, the City Council, and from other agencies.

Ofsted regularly inspects the Fostering Service to ensure that we achieve the aims and objectives set out in the Statement of Purpose. The Statement of Purpose is revised annually and includes the views of children and young people in foster placement, foster carers, social workers, managers and other professionals working with children and young people.
