Download the long service certificate to acknowledge your foster carers' long service to fostering.
Foster carers work tremendously hard to make a difference to children’s and young people’s lives every day. Making sure they are recognised and valued for their continued commitment and dedication is really important.
The long service certificate is a resource for fostering services to acknowledge your foster carers’ outstanding commitment and long service to fostering.
The certificate can be filled in on screen and we recommend printing it on thick certificate paper.
The number of years’ service has been left blank for you to fill in. We recommend 10 years as a minimum for long service, but this can vary by fostering service and so for example five years may be more appropriate.
The long service certificate is just one way you can recognise your foster carers. The annual Fostering Excellence Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in fostering and recognise those who make exceptional contributions to foster care. Find out how you can nominate your foster carers for the Outstanding Contribution by a Foster Carer Award.
