Our Salisbury Office
Our Salisbury-based team work together to support our team of carers. The social work staff are all highly qualified and have extensive experience of working in fostering services. We also have fostering support workers who are available to assist foster carers and their children.
Our team have the local knowledge and ability to promote a sense of ‘family’ among our carers. Foster carers are encouraged to meet up to discuss ways to improve the service and we always listen to the voice of the child encouraging participation in decisions affecting their care.
Our latest Ofsted inspection said: “The agency provides an exceptionally high quality of care and support to its foster carers, who in turn provide the same exceptional quality of care and support to the children and young people. Foster carers enjoy a very positive experience with the agency from their first contact. They are welcomed, given good information, and prepared and assessed as foster carers to a very high standard. Foster carers who have moved to this agency from other independent fostering agencies compare this agency very favourably to their previous experiences.” (Ofsted inspector, December 2017)
Our carers come from:
- Isle of Wight
- West Berkshire
- and surrounding areas.
We offer a progressive programme of training to help carers to develop new skills and knowledge. Carers and young people are given recognition for their achievements, and our team lay on great social days out to local attractions in the countryside such as theme parks, nature and outdoor adventure days and the best beaches in the region.
“I love all the activities that get arranged – we also get asked the types of things we would like to do and we meet loads of other kids as well. I’ve even done some interviews for a support worker which was really cool.” – Young Person, aged 14.
“We feel really supported by Five Rivers; it’s very different from our old agency and the support and training is amazing.” – Carer
