Our website safefostering.co.uk allows users and third parties to post comments and ratings of fostering organisations and their personal experience of such reviews. We want potential foster carers to use these reviews to help make an informed decision when choosing the best fostering organisation.  Foster carers reviews is an integral part of safefostering.co.uk.  The Reviews provide foster carers with an opportunity to provide feedback and fostering organisations to use this feedback to make improvements.

Reviews cannot be submitted anonymously through safefostering.co.uk.  We will require the reviewer to register on our site providing their name and telephone/email.  We may share the review with the fostering organisation, so that we can that ensure the review is genuine.

Safefostering.co.uk has a zero-tolerance policy towards any reviews violations. If we detect any attempts to manipulate fostering reviews, we will take immediate actions that include, but are not limited to:

  • Attempts by an owner or agent of a fostering organisation to boost the reputation of an organisation by:
  • Writing a review for their own organisation or for any organisation they own/manage or have a financial interest in.  This includes using services that sell reviews, websites, or social media groups
  • Offers a third party a financial rewarded discount or other compensation in exchange for writing a review about their or competitor’s organisation
  • Impersonating a competitor or foster carer
  • Offering incentives or inducements (including discounts, free prize draws or any special treatment) to foster carers in exchange for reviews or to influence the content of a review
  • Submitting reviews on behalf of a foster carer
  • Pressurising foster carers to submit a positive review, remove a negative review or to make changes to a review
  • Asking foster carers to remove their reviews in return for a discount or incentive
  • Prohibiting or discouraging foster carers from posting negative or critical reviews of their experience
  • Attempts to damage competitors by submitting a negative review
  • An owner or agent of a fostering organisation writing a review on a direct competitor, even if the review describes a genuine experience.

Whilst investigating a potential fraudulent review, we may suspend the review and then we will decide whether to remove it permanently or reinstate it. If we discover a fraudulent review, as well as removing that review, we may also remove all reviews for that fostering organisation and any companies in the same group.

To help maintain the integrity of our website, we reserve the right to carry out a full audit of all reviews on a profile page if we are alerted to the possibility of fraudulent reviews or if we are suspicious about reviews (e.g., several reviews submitted with the same handwriting or all reviews have an excellent rating for all categories). When performing an audit, we may ask all or some of the following questions

  1. Did you complete the review yourself?
  2. Did you submit the review online yourself?
  3. Did you choose all the ratings yourself?
