Sandwell Children’s Trust are looking to increase the central list for fostering panel members.

Previous panel experience isn’t essential and we are looking at recruiting panel members from a wide variety of backgrounds including: • Former looked after children; • Foster carers who are registered with another agency; • Experienced fostering Social Workers; • Professionals with a background in health, education and police. Ideally you will have had experience either professionally or personally or both of the placement of children in foster care.
