Prospective Foster Carer Report (Form F) Wales
Prospective Foster Carer Report (Form F) Wales Guidance Notes
Introduction to Prospective Foster Carer Report
These notes provide guidance about completing the Prospective Foster Carer Report (Form F) Wales. They are complemented by Chapman’s (2016) book on undertaking an assessment using Form F, and by Adams’ (2017) detailed guidance about best practices in undertaking checks and references.
This form has been designed for use in Wales; similar forms are available for Scotland, England and Northern Ireland. The form is not designed with kinship carers in mind. Anyone undertaking a kinship assessment should read the National Fostering Framework’s good practice guide for the assessment and support of kinship foster carers.
