Our placement support workers play a key part in transforming and raising aspirations of our young people. They are available to offer practical help, whether it is accompanying children and carers to appointments, providing assistance with transport or taking young people out for activities or one-to-one work.
Placement Support Workers offer a flexible combination of practical and emotional support to children, young people, carers and families to ensure they thrive on their journey together. They routinely arrange for the foster children to meet collectively to undertake joint activities and workshops, these include funs days out to the zoo, museums, theme parks. We also listen to what the children want and recently one group wanted to learn First Aid! Activities and workshops also give us an opportunity to ask the children and young people we look after, what they think about Swiis and their placement and how we can do better. We listen to what our children and young people have to say and adapt the way we work to make sure they get the best from us.
