Specialist Schemes

Foster Plus covers our specialist fostering schemes which includes looking for foster carers for teenage placements, foster carers who can offer a placement for a parent and baby and foster carers to care for children with disabilities.

We ask all our foster plus carers to be able to:

  • offer a stable, structured and nurturing environment
  • help maintain and develop positive and supporting relationships.
  • Assist children/young people to integrate and develop positive links within their local community
  • Reduce the numbers of children and young people placed outside Neath Port Talbot
  • Committed to managing crises and maintaining a child’s placement through times of difficulty
  • To plan interventions to deal with difficult behaviour.
  • To have the ability to set appropriate boundaries and manage the young person’s behaviour within these, without the use of physical or other inappropriate punishment.
  • To work with the project group to try new approaches to managing behaviour.
  • To collaborate with other professional workers
  • To communicate effectively both verbal and written
  • To keep information confidential
  • To promote equality, diversity and rights of individuals
  • To respect the different backgrounds and experiences of the young person
