Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

Within fostering we have been promoting recruitment of new foster carers which will save money for the council if we provide in house placements rather than moving children to IFA’s often outside of the local area. We have funding remaining in the Transformation Fund and would like to recruit a SSW/Assessor on a temporary basis to support the assessment service so we are not keeping applicants waiting to be assessed and approved as foster carers. This post will help us to create more capacity within the team and move carers through to approval more efficiently. This post is in addition to the workers that we already have in the team it is not a vacant post.
