Our Foster Parents are part of the team

Evolve assesses and trains foster parents from across the South East region.

Supervising Social Workers support a maximum of 9 foster families. There is additional Peer Mentor support working closely with supervising social worker and with foster parents.

The social work team is supported by the Registered Manager and there is access to the local therapeutic/clinical team for everyone.

Should the need arise whereby foster parents find it geographically difficult to attend our Kent offices, alternative meeting and training facilities will be sourced in other areas of the South East.
As the service develops, we will actively establish additional offices to match our growth plans, along with the whereabouts of new foster families to ensure the needs of local authority customers are met.

All Evolve, foster parents are distinguished by their commitment to therapeutic fostering as a profession. We support and supervise all foster parents to raise their knowledge and experience in this career and aim for the best possible outcomes for children and young people in their care. All foster parents are treated as professional colleagues and will make professional development opportunities available to them.

New fostering applicants will only be approved by Evolve Therapeutic Fostering if they are able to pass our rigorous screening, safeguarding, training and assessment processes.

An open Culture

Evolve Therapeutic Fostering is open with its foster parents over our fees. Many who have transferred from other providers have been found to be underpaid by their previous service, when the inherited fee to local authorities becomes known to Evolve.

Family & Friend Fosters Parents or respite provision

At Evolve, it is our belief that each child or young person should receive continuity of care.  This in turn allows stability for a child who might have otherwise experienced multiple placement moves or having to move to an unknown foster family within a previous service.

This normally occurs when a foster family wish to use their respite entitlement, but in line with treating the child or young person as your own, this service is rarely required as family holidays are promoted and supported.
