There are significant risks that without this leadership capacity, management oversight and the safety and regulatory compliance of the service will be compromised and that service development will be less effective. Carers who are feeling unsupported may transfer to other agencies resulting in reduced placement capacity within the service. Without effective leadership, the recruitment of new Foster Carers to the service will be less effective.

The service redesign and review will require capacity to achieve significant change management which is likely to include reshaping of the delivery of adoption and SGO functions.
