Brightsparks believes that all children and young people should grow up in a safe, stable and supportive home and be given every opportunity to thrive.
That’s why we’re passionate about supporting local authorities to recruit more foster carers to provide safe, caring homes for children and young people in their local area.
Working collaboratively with Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, we are delivering a market-leading foster carer recruitment campaign in Rotherham that is achieving fantastic results.
It is a pleasure working with RMBC who were kind enough to share these words about Brightsparks:
“I hadn’t worked in this way before (with an outside agency) but to my delight what I found was a company who are as passionate about recruiting new foster carers as we are.”
“They take time to understand the values and aims of the fostering service and recruit foster carers with vigour and sensitivity. They are extremely child focused and ethical in how they approach recruitment. They provide data that is robust and accurate and continually supports us in our work. They create strong relationships with social workers, managers, fostering advisers and foster carers, presenting as authentic and professional.”
“One of the most beneficial aspects of their role is to monitor all leads and ensure that they receive excellent customer service. I’m confident we don’t miss out on recruiting foster carers due to a missed phone call or somebody falling through the system. Their processes ensure oversight of every step in the enquirer’s journey to becoming a foster carer.”
“I would highly recommend them to any recruitment service that wants to see an increase in new foster carers.”
