Outcomes

Pride’s focus is always the child and young person in our care. We aim to provide children and young people with a positive, safe and high level of support in a family environment.

Our services seek to allow children and young people to develop and grow within the five key outcomes areas of “Every Child Matters”:

      1– Be Healthy

      2– Stay Safe

      3– Enjoy and Achieve

      4– Make a Positive Contribution

      5– Achieve Economic Well-being

We have summarised below our approach to each of the outcomes. We closely monitor these and look to provide feedback to our Local Authorities.

Enjoy and Achieve

Foster carers are encouraged to reward children and young people for success in exams or other achievements. At Pride Fostering Service, we also make sure,

  • Allowances are paid to carers to provide for birthday and religious celebrations.
  • Carers are expected to take children in their care on holidays during the year.
  • Activities for children are actively encouraged such as sport, social and other events.
  • Additional allowances are paid to support a child if they have a particular talent or hobby that promotes their happiness.
Make a Positive Contribution All children (foster and birth) are encouraged to provide input into foster carer reviews. Children are given a guidebook to motivate them to have a positive impact on others around them. Our handbooks for children are available online as a pdf file or a print copy can be collected from your social worker.
