Swiis are there to support you from the very first point of contact, through your fostering application and approval and for all the placements you have. We will work with you every day to help you make a difference to a child’s life. The journey to becoming a foster carer, from application through to that exciting day when your first placement begins involves a very thorough process.
Swiis’ ultimate priority is to protect the wellbeing of both the children and our carers so the process to become a registered foster carer includes a number of rigorous checks and 4 days of pre-approval training.
Once the formal assessment begins, it will take between 12 and 16 weeks to complete and we achieve this for over 80% of our carer applicants, however the assessment can progress at a pace that suits you and we will adapt the process to meet your individual needs.
