Credo Care is an approved provider of foster care services for Local Authorities across the UK.
We offer long term, short term and respite placements. We are also able to provide short break placements directly to birth parents using Direct Payments (where Local Authorities give money to parents to buy their own care).
Credo Care has always been keen to give best value and help Local Authority budgets to go as far as possible. Our staff are experienced in re-settling disabled young people from Residential and Hospital care to long term foster care.
A child placed long term with our foster families, rather than and cared for by an ever changing rota of staff, develops a sense of routine and belonging which helps their development.
Unlike many other fostering agencies, we do not usually make any extra charges or add-ons for our service. This helps Local Authorities control and plan their spending more effectively.
Credo Care's matching process is one of which we are very proud. We were commended on this high standard of work by Ofsted.
So that Credo Care and our foster carers can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with the placement or not, it is essential we and the carer receive all possible information about a young person prior to placement.
If we go ahead, we complete a comprehensive matching report to ensure that all aspects of care can be met thoroughly. If we identify any gaps in the foster carers' skills, we ensure that the carers receive specific training in these skills before the child is placed.
Credo Care believes that it is essential for children and carers to be matched comprehensively and that all possible resources are in place prior to placement. This includes specialist medical training and pre-placement work with specialist staff.
