We have procedures for making compliments, suggestions and complaints based on the following principles.
The Fostering Network is the UK’s leading fostering charity, bringing together everyone who is involved in the lives of fostered children to make foster care the very best it can be.
Our teams are crucial to our success and we need staff who are open to new ideas, whether they are about how and where we work, our services to members or how we make the strategy a success. Are you excited by new concepts and want the opportunity to explore new ideas?
Trustees are custodians of an organisation and govern its strategic direction. Our elected trustees are passionate about making a difference and improving foster care for children and young people in the UK, and they bring skills and experience which enable them to govern a successful charity and democratic membership organisation like The Fostering Network. With a turnover of more than £7 million per year, more than 100 staff and tens of thousands of members, the organisation needs business brains and strategic thinkers on its board.
