iMPOWER worked closely with the fostering team to baseline current performance and develop a range of innovative approaches to measure the level of opportunity for Staffordshire to increase take-up to our already high performing in-house fostering service. The team introduced new concepts, such as Value Modes, and the effects of this fresh thinking was felt immediately, as together with iMPOWER we revamped the service’s approach to the crucial first meeting with potential new recruits. The new approach visibly showcased the benefits of being a foster carer more effectively and helped the team understand the numerous practical applications of this previously unfamiliar methodology. iMPOWER’s long term legacy is the way they have critiqued our past practices and constructively challenged the way we view communications with existing as well as potential new foster carers. iMPOWER’s collaborative approach has enhanced an already high performing team, with innovative thinking and fresh ideas.Richard Hancock, Assistant Director, Looked After Children, at Staffordshire County Council
