Staff in our Cumbria office in Carlisle were celebrating recently after the latest Ofsted inspection judged the service to be 'Good' overall, and highlighted many areas of first class practice especially in terms of children's wellbeing and support for foster carers and families.
We were especially pleased to read how many of our agency’s core values are being translated into good quality services delivered ‘on the ground’ to children and foster carers, for example:
Family Fostercare director Granville Orange says of the inspection outcome, "We are delighted that Ofsted has found our agency in Cumbria to be of a 'Good' standard, and we will as ever work hard to address the few recommendations made in this recent report, the majority of which we anticipate will be resolved as our new electronic information recording system is completely embedded into our working practices. Our team in Cumbria is looking forward to continuing to develop and improve our services to foster families in the Cumbria region."
Well done to all our foster carers and staff in Cumbria. If you are interested to read the full report you can download it from the Documents Library section on our website. It makes very ‘Good’ reading!
