The application and assessment process involved in becoming a Priory foster carer is explained below:
Please contact us either by phone, calling 01684 560 333 or by completing a short enquiry form. We will then arrange an informal home visit to find out a little more about you, and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
If you want to go ahead following our initial conversation, we will then:
- Undertake an enhanced criminal records check (DBS check)
- Arrange for a full medical
- Begin your home study assessment (Form F) and take up references
- Book you on our ‘Skills to Foster’ course
Once the assessment is completed, we will present our report to the fostering panel.
