Ofsted joy for Solihull-based fostering agency Clifford House

Solihull Editorial 24th Apr, 2022   0

A SOLIHULL based foster agency has received a ‘Good’ Ofsted report for the care it provides to vulnerable children.

Clifford House was inspected in February 2022 for the first time since 2017 due to the pandemic.

The report stated that the ‘children make great progress from their starting points because of the care they receive’.

One child told the inspectors: ‘I am happy living with my carers and enjoy doing activities together as a family’.

Registered manager at Clifford House, Lesley Greenfield, said: “I am so proud of the work that all of our foster parents put in to ensure that children who need love and stability are provided with the homes they need in their local area.

“Having our work reflected in our most recent Ofsted report rating is truly amazing, and means that we can continue working hard to help vulnerable young children across the area.”

Clifford House currently has 43 approved fostering households, which collectively take care of 61 children.

The report also stated that the ‘registered manager is passionate, highly committed and has worked hard to create the right environment for staff to work effectively’.

“We have good retention at our foster agency which provides excellent stability for our looked after children, as well as a great work place for our foster parents,” said Lesley.
