Orange Grove Fostercare Yorkshire is responsible for respite range of services in and around Hull and the East Ridings. These include emergency, permanent, long and short-term fostering placements for children.
The agency was praised by inspectors for “providing first-rate support to their foster carers and children and young people,”. They also described the agency as “flourishing because of the high-quality, nurturing care and support provided by their foster carers.”
According to the report, “foster carers are supported by the long-standing, dedicated and experienced supervising social workers.” They went on to add that, “foster carers spoke of the supervising social workers ‘going over and beyond’, ‘always being available’ and how ‘their guidance has resulted in consecutive success stories’.”
Staff Thrilled With Outstanding Ofsted Report
The report also revealed how children felt. It said; “the children and young people feel loved”, “they experience stability”, and as a result, “become less anxious, more confident and have improved self-esteem.”
“The whole agency is thrilled to be awarded our second consecutive Outstanding rating by Ofsted. The result is purely down to the team’s tireless dedication to providing the best care and also support to vulnerable children.”
“I’d like to express how proud I am of the entire team and all of our inspiring foster carers. Without their enthusiasm, many young people and children wouldn’t be able to achieve the great things they are destined to do.”
The outcome was achieved under the new Ofsted inspection framework which is widely regarded as more strict.
Orange Grove Fostercare is an independent fostering agency who currently takes care of over 400 children across the South East, Midlands, North West and Yorkshire.
