While Link Maker is used by nearly every local authority in the UK for adoptive matching, over one-third of authorities across England are preparing to pilot a new platform for commissioning fostering and residential placements.
The platform is funded by authorities, and free to placement providers. It offers the potential for greater efficiency, and a greater focus on individual needs, in the way placements are commissioned.
To ensure your vacancies are available when needed we recommend registering now and adding your details. Placements can be identified in a number of ways:
- Any authority may contact you to explore a vacancy you have listed
- You may contact any authority that has listed a placement request if you feel you can help
- Authorities within your framework(s) may issue placement requests to you specifically
