Services and Facilities
Banya offers the full range of placement services including: emergency, short-term, long term, respite, bridging, assessment, and parent and child.
For every placement, there is effective support through Banya’s carefully trained and matched foster carers, and their supervision by our experienced social workers. The Banya ethos is to respect the potential and aspirations of each child and young person.
Our Social Workers
Our social work team supervises and supports Banya’s foster carer households and the children and young people placed with them. The team comprises Senior Practitioners and Supervising Social Workers, all of whom are professionally qualified. The Fostering Manager, or in her absence her Deputy, has direct responsibility for managing this team.
Our Care Standards
Banya aspires to follow best practice in care standards, with reference not only to legislation and regulatory or other guidelines, but also to the advice of professional bodies through Banya’s membership of Fostering Network and British Association for Adoption and Fostering.
Banya was recognized in its last Ofsted inspection Report as "good" overall, with Quality of Service “good”.
Young people are well-matched with foster carers, who are providing good care in safe and comfortable homes.
