Why become a Form F Assessor with us?

At Orange Grove, we pride ourselves on quality and strive to recruit the very best foster parents to care for the children we support. As a fostering agency covering most of the UK, we are always looking for experienced social workers, nationwide, to complete fostering assessments on potential applicants.

We complete some of our fostering assessments internally, however, the majority are completed by independent social workers who have contracts with the Polaris Community - a national community of fostering agencies which Orange Grove is part of. We offer market rates on a per-assessment basis, as well as travel expenses. We also offer opportunities for consultation and practice development.
