Main duties of the job

Within Wiltshire Councils Home Away from Home fostering scheme we provide specialized services which includes:

Home Away from Home Specialist foster carer would provide care and support to children and young people with complex needs and this may include those children and young people living with complex medical needs and disabilities, or those who have experienced a high level of trauma.

Foster carers who are required to provide a home for a parent and child, and complete an assessment of their parenting capacity, also known as a Parent and Child foster carer

Foster carers to provide care under our Short-Term Emergency Provision Scheme (STEPS)

About us

Fostering allowance from £650 per week, when you are fostering as a Home Away from Home Specialist and Parent and Child foster carer. The STEPS scheme has its own fee structure but at a similar rate.

Payments are made fortnightly in arrears.

Additional £250 for a childs birthday, £250 for a festival allowance, such as Christmas, and £500 holiday allowance in the summer holidays. This equates to an additional £1000 per year, per child to reflect the additional costs foster carers will need at these times.

As a foster carer you will also need to register as self-employed.

There are generous tax allowances for foster carers, meaning you will pay little tax on these earnings

Job description

Job responsibilities

Foster carers for all the specialist roles will be required to complete the following tasks:

Provide a home for a child or young person who requires specialist foster care.

Provide care and support that is based on therapeutic and trauma informed care rather than traditional parenting.

Welcome and integrate the child or young person into your family and your support network.

Have a commitment to meet a child or young persons cultural needs, valuing diversity and actively promoting an anti-discriminatory approach.

Develop a positive working relationship with the child or young persons family, facilitating regular visits either in your home or in the community, as appropriate.

Ensure that the child or young person attends all appointments with professionals as required.

Welcome professionals from multi-disciplinary settings into your home to visit the child and attend meetings.

Support the child or young person with their education and care for them when they are not in school.

Engage and work closely with all professionals in the Team Around the Child (TAC).

Participate in a full fostering assessment and attend Fostering Panel for your approval with the support of your assessing social worker.

You, and your partner if in a relationship, will need to complete all mandatory training as well as additional specialist training. See below for more details.

Keep detailed electronic recording of information each day for the child or young person which are emailed to the childs social worker each week.

Engage with regular support and supervision, as well as to attend the fostering support groups and any other support deemed appropriate for this role.

Caring for children and young people with complex health needs:

Provide short- or long-term care to children or young people with significant complex medical needs and/or disabilities.

Provide 24-hour support for the child, meeting all daily needs i.e. absence of self-feeding, changing of pads beyond what is expected in early childhood, monitoring and management of seizures, administering a complex medication regime, postural management.

Close liaison with multi-disciplinary health professionals.

Ensure that the child or young person attends all medical appointments and carry out any recommended actions or treatments.

Complete any required additional training to ensure you have the skills and knowledge to carry out medical tasks.

Your home will need to be suitable to care for the child in your care and adaptions may be needed to allow you to care for them safely.

Caring for children who have experienced significant trauma to live in a family setting:

This role involves supporting children and young people who are at risk of needing residential care or have been in residential care and need to return to live in a family environment.

Therapeutic support will be provided by the Home Away from Home Specialist foster carer, who will be trained to a high level in advanced PACE to enable a child or young person to move to a mainstream foster home which we anticipate can take from 6-12 months

You would have priority access to support from our family support workers and our placement therapists, as well as additional support from your allocated social worker.

Regular team around the child meetings will take place to ensure you and the children or young people you care for are receiving all the necessary support and to review progress.

Parent and child foster care:

As a specialist parent and child foster carer, you will need to complete an assessment of the parents capacity to care for their child, whilst in your care. Often this involves writing a report which will be shared with the court.

You will need to consider a parents ability to meet all aspects of their childs needs.

At the beginning of the assessment, you will be given clear direction in the areas of assessment that are required.

Sometimes you will need to have a monitor on overnight to supervise the parents care for their child and on other occasions you may be asked to care for the child overnight.

Intervene as required if you consider a parents care to be unsafe or neglectful.

If the parent is under the age of 18 years, you would be the foster carer for both the child and the parent.

Develop a positive working relationship with the parent that is open and honest, kind and empathic.

Provide observations to evidence your views in reports.

On occasion, you may be required to give evidence in court proceedings.

Complete additional and specialist training in preparation for your role

Short Term Emergency Provision Scheme (STEPS):

As a STEPS foster carer you will need to be available day or night to care for at least a 14 day period each month.

You would be expected to care for ANY child needing a home in an emergency during this time until a suitable short-term foster home is found for them.

To reflect the challenges that this type of fostering brings, you would then have 14 days rest period.

It is essential that our STEPS carers are flexible and have an ability to remain child focused when plans do not come to fruition.

Provide intensive support to the young person whilst they are with living you.

The focus is on keeping our young people safe and trying to engage them in a positive way.

Often it involves supporting young people who have moved in a crisis or do not have a clear plan for their future.

Most young people who need a STEPS carer will have low self-esteem and may continue to be vulnerable therefore having the ability to respond to crisis is essential, as well as positive attitude to improve emotional wellbeing.

Recruitment Assessment

The first step is to have an initial discussion with a Recruitment Support Worker.

An Initial Home visit is then booked at a convenient time so that we can talk about your personal circumstance in more detail.

If we both agree to proceed, we will send you an application form to complete.

When this is returned, we will begin to complete our refences and checks.

You will then be invited to complete our Introduction to Fostering course.

Once allocated, your social worker will complete your fostering assessment. They

will find out about yourself and your family, your support network, as well as any skills and experience you will bring to fostering. We will also complete enhanced police checks, require full medicals, obtain references from friends and family as well as from any significant ex-partners, unless there is a good reason not to contact them.

We aim for the Fostering Assessment to be completed within 4-6 months.

A report will be completed, which you get to check first, which is then sent to Fostering Panel for their approval. You would then attend fostering panel to answer any questions they before recommending your approval to a senior manager.

You will be supported throughout the assessment by your social worker and we also have a monthly virtual support group for people who are going through their assessment. We hope this will allow you to make a connection with other potential carers as well as to meet more members of the fostering team.

Training Requirements

In Wiltshire we have a dedicated training officer who ensures that our training is of a high quality and is constantly updated.

Mandatory training for all foster carers in the first year of fostering approval: First Aid, Safeguarding, Safer Caring, Diversity.
