We Asked

We consulted on how to improve our fostering service and how we communicate it to the public.

The consultation formed part of our discovery phase, investigating people’s attitudes and thoughts about fostering, and how they experience the online and offline aspects of the service.

You Said

The survey results highlighted that the majority of people first find out about fostering through word of mouth or personal experiences (through family and friends), and would then use their online browser or the Council's website to find out more about fostering in Stockport.

We Did

The finding that most people hear about fostering through word of mouth along with the findings that people engage most with social media and hobby/leisure groups, has helped us refine how we market fostering and which channels are best to motivate people to enquire/get in touch with the fostering team.
