I’m Janine, a senior supervising social worker within Yorkshire. I have worked for Fostering People for three years and have been a social worker for ten.
I joined Fostering People because I was looking for a new challenge after working for the local authority as a social worker for many years. Fostering was an element of social work that I had always been interested in and Fostering People fit the criteria in terms of their reputation as a fostering agency.
Fostering People were looking to expand into Yorkshire and I wanted to be part of the long term development plan. I’ve found fostering to be a refreshing change. Our foster carers are fantastic people to work alongside. Their enthusiasm for providing children with a safe, stable and nurturing environment is inspiring and gives me a good platform to sing our praises in terms of being an outstanding company to potential carers in the future.
