We have a responsibility to ensure that children are safe and that any concerns that we have in relation to child protection will be dealt with swiftly, in line with our child protection procedures. As part of their duties, all private fostering agreements must be reported to the Local Authority. This is a statutory requirement and parents/carers of children must speak with our DSLs to advise of the agreement. Our LAC DSL is Helen Kingdon.
