Evolve Events

The events and activities for foster carers and children are really important and key part of the support for foster carers. Events are aimed to be inclusive and encourage participation. When fostering, it is important to being people together, to celebrate achievements and have fun! These give everyone an opportunity to share experiences and just spend time talking about fostering.

We organise and hold regular events throughout the year including a year end awards celebration and events for all foster carers and children. Other activities include a summer fun club and trip to the local beach. Other religious dates are important to celebrate together.

When organising fostering events, it is important to listen and engage with foster carers and children on the type of events that they would like organising. We secure feedback and ideas for our events each year. Safeguarding is always a priority and ensuring everyone remains safe and well whilst having an excellent time.

Support groups are another important event type to bring foster carers and children together. These are held more regularly and are often based on a relevant topics that can be discussed or shared as a group. Our managers and social workers attend these events also. For each event, we follow up on how people found these and ideas for the future.

Ofsted Report

REQUEST A CALL BACK

Evolve is registered and inspected by Ofsted for the agency fostering services and support.

Our last inspection was in September 2022, where we were rated Good in all areas, with the agency continuing to grow since. We now support over 10 fostering families with other families under assessment. We would love to welcome to you to your fostering agency or work with you – please read the full report from the link below.

We work closely with Ofsted for ongoing notifications, reporting quarterly on the agency activity, growth and best practice. Local Authorities are also key partners for their children and young persons on their outcomes and safeguarding.

Ofsted highlighted that:
Children are looked after by foster carers who are warm and caring. Care is individualised and carers receive good support from the agency to meet the diverse and complex needs of the children. The multi-professional clinical team attached to the agency trains foster carers in therapeutic parenting. This method of therapeutic intervention has led to children making good progress.

Therapeutic fostering isn’t about becoming a therapist, it is a way of therapeutically parenting a child or young person who missed out on healthy emotional development and milestones in their early years.
