Would you like the opportunity to tell us what you think about fostering, and Head, Heart, Hands?
The Head, Heart, Hands independent evaluation team would like to invite you to share your thoughts and opinions about the Head, Heart, Hands (HHH) programme to introduce social pedagogy into UK fostering. This is an opportunity to feedback your thoughts and experiences of HHH, and fostering in general, to local and national decision makers.
Your views are extremely important!
You can take part in the evaluation by completing a survey by Monday 31st March 2014. In addition, or instead, we would like to invite you for an interview. The interviews are very informal, and can be done over the phone at a time that suits you best. They usually take about an hour. We have appointments available going into April for any interviews.
We are also looking to speak to the children and young people who you foster, aged five years or older. We would like to know more about their experiences of foster care to date. These interviews will also be very informal and take about an hour to an hour and a half.
Anything you or your foster child say in the interview will be anonymous and stay confidential to the evaluation team.
Participation in the evaluation will be a fantastic opportunity for you and your fostered child to feedback views about the Head, Heart, Hands programme, social pedagogy and fostering in general to local and national decision makers.
