A council fostering service has been given a positive report by care bosses.
Dundee City Council fostering service recruits, trains and supports foster carers and their families to provide emergency, temporary or permanent care for children and young people who require alternative family care.
The team includes a senior manager, a team manager and supervising social workers.
The Care Inspectorate said at the time of its visit, the service was supporting 96 foster carers to look after 156 children and young people.
In a report, it said: “Children and young people and foster carers we spoke to confirmed that, overall, children felt safe and protected from abuse, neglect and harm where they were living and within the community.
“Young people and foster carers had identified people to support them with decision-making and keeping safe.
“Children and young people and foster carers were being well-supported to maintain high levels of health and wellbeing.”
Councillor Gregor Murray, convener of the children and families service, said: “I would like to thank the staff of the fostering service for the quality of their work which has been recognised in this inspection. They put in so much effort to help and support those who take the decision to become foster parents.
“I would also like to express my gratitude to these families for what they do to look after some of the most vulnerable young people in our communities.
“We are always appealing for people to come forward to become foster carers.
“Anyone who is interested should call 01382 436060 as it could make a real difference to the lives of children in this city.”
