INDEPENDENT FOSTERING PANEL MEMBERS

Three Circles Fostering are currently looking to recruit Fostering Panel Members to attend our day time panel meetings at our Wilmslow office in Cheshire.

We are specifically looking to recruit the following people:

• someone with a health background

• someone with recent / current experience of fostering children

• someone who has personal experience of being a looked after child

• someone from a police or legal background.

We are specifically looking for individuals with experience and skills in attending complex meetings where a wide variety of views maybe expressed. Good listening and communication skills are essential along with the ability to make an assessment based on the written and oral information presented to the panel in order to discuss and make decisions in a balanced and informed manner.

Applicants will receive panel paperwork electronically so should have secure access to a laptop (or similar).

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all employees to share this commitment and undertake appropriate checks. Successful applicants will be required to undertake relevant DBS checks, the cost of which is funded by the agency.
