A partnership approach with Local Authorities

We aim to provide an exceptional service for children, young people, carers and placing authorities.

We firmly believe that better lives, better opportunities and better outcomes can be achieved for looked after children and young people by working in genuine partnership with Local Authorities, collectively focussing on the following priorities:

  • Child-centred philosophy
  • Partnership approach
  • Support for carers
  • The value of education and a culture of learning, with commitment to training
  • Continuous improvement

Local Authorities are reassured that by choosing Swiis they are working in partnership with a loyal, quality, well-trained and effectively-supported carer base.

We also adopt a positive policy of not seeking to recruit existing carers from Local Authorities and other foster care agencies.

“Swiis is managed ethically, effectively and efficiently delivering an excellent service which meets the needs of its users.”Edgbaston Ofsted Report, 2011
