CISS Service Delivery
This report is unique as we have gathered data about the impact of COVID- 19 on the Out of Home Care sector over the last six months of reporting.
In the 12 month period 1 July 2019 – 30 June 2020 the Carer Information & Support Service (CISS) responded to and closed 681 foster care enquiries, delivering 1282.4 hours of service.
The FCAV is funded to provide support to 400 foster care enquiries per year. The number of enquiries has exceeded this benchmark on average 80% each year since 2016-17. Additional fixed term funding was provided in 2019-20 to support over performance of the CISS team.
