The time it takes to become a foster carer is up to you. Swiis can take the foster carer assessment process time as quickly or as slowly as you feel comfortable with, we make sure it is at a pace that suits you. Swiis aim to complete the assessment of foster carers within four months and achieve this time for over 80% of the carers applying to become a foster carer. We run regular training courses throughout the year to ensure that whilst your assessment is being undertaken that you attend the necessary training required prior to the completion of your assessment.
All carer applicants are asked to further support this process by being available for training and providing all necessary information to ensure that where possible we keep within this timeframe.
