Care Visions Fostering (Scotland) are recruiting Independent Panel members for our fostering panel which is based in Stirling and sits on a Monday.
The fostering panel provides independent oversight of the recruitment, assessment and review of foster carers and makes reasoned decisions on their suitability to foster.
Applicants should have experience - either professionally, personally or both - of the placement of children in adoptive or foster families, or of children being cared for away from their birth family.
This can include work in; education, health, social care, as a foster carer, or having personal experience of being looked after personally as a child or young person.
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.
It is very important to us that our Panel members are from different backgrounds to help us ensure we are making the right decisions for the children and young people in our care.
We welcome applicants from minority backgrounds including: Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, LGBTQ+, Disabilities and more. 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 a PVG check.
A Fee is paid and Travelling Expenses.
