Our Have YOUR Say service provides our Foster Carers and Fostering Service Provider employees in Northern Ireland the chance to be heard on the topics that matter to them. We’ve launched Have YOUR Say because we feel it’s vital that you’re listened to and understood by policy makers, MPs and other regulators. We understand how important it is to you to ensure the views of those directly affected are taken on board and that fostering is afforded the same respect as every other child care profession.
In addition to our Foster Carer memberships, FosterTalk provides the Foster Carers Independent Support Service (FISS) in Northern Ireland which enables Foster Carers who are facing allegations, complaints or concerns about their practice to be provided with an independent person to support them throughout the process. Your FISS Advisor can provide you with emotional and practical support at this difficult time, accompany you to meetings and write letters and reports on your behalf. FosterTalk provides the FISS Service in partnership with your Fostering Service Provider, so if you would like more information or think that you may need a FISS Advisor, please contactFosterTalk for advice.
