Warwickshire Fostering Service is keen to find new parent and child assessment foster carer placements. Parents, particularly young mothers, who are unable to meet their child’s most basic needs and protect them, sometimes need a nurturing family environment where they can be supported in looking after their baby or young child.
Parent and child foster placements may help a family to stay together and provide a positive alternative to residential care, which can be expensive and isolating. Potential foster carers provide both practical and emotional support to help the parent to develop the skills required to meet their own and their child’s needs. Once the parent has successfully completed an assessment within their fostering placement, they are then supported to live independently with their child.
People who have had some childcare experience or have raised children of their own would be ideal foster carers for a parent and child due to the life skills involved in this type of fostering. Full training and support is given to foster carers, who are matched to one or more of the different foster care schemes, depending on what suits their lifestyles and commitments. Carers are paid an allowance which reflects the real cost of looking after a child.
The Parent and Child Assessment Arrangement project is currently looking to recruit 5 foster families who can meet the needs of these placements.

Warwickshire County Council needs to make overall savings of around £92m by 2018.
Each year, the Council spends around £15 million per year on home to school transport. The savings target allocated to this area of work as part of the One Organisational Plan is £3.7m.
As a local authority we currently provide free or assisted transport to certain groups of children with no legal entitlement to such support. The current cost of the discretionary element of our transport provision is at least £2.9 million. This includes our Vacant Seats and Post 16 schemes that generate around £1.2 million of income per year.
