FosterTalk Independent Review

In 2020 FosterTalk commissioned Dr. Carolyn Blackburn and Dr. Elaine Matchett from Birmingham City University to compile an independent review of our services and our role in the retention of foster carers.

The research included over 400 online respondents and interviews with FosterTalk members and a representative from the Dfe.  Carers were asked about their experiences of fostering, FosterTalk membership services, and how we can continue to improve our services and deliver market-leading support for our members.

The review gave clear recommendations on how FosterTalk can enhance its services.  We have welcomed this feedback and have already started to make positive changes to our benefits and how we communicate with our members.

At FosterTalk we are committed to support those who care which is why your feedback is so important to us.  If you would like to share any thoughts on our services or our team then please call us on 0121 758 5013 or email
