Our Preferred Placements List helps match and place children and young people who are in care.

Why join?

If you a fostering agency, residential children’s home or semi-independent accommodation provider for children and young people it really does pay to join our nationally recognised preferred placements list.

One Stop Social assists Local Authorities in the identification of appropriate placements for children and young people. Offering a speedy response and collaborative working, we assist by matching placements and make local links on behalf of the Local Authorities – particularly out of area cases.

This service has been hugely successful as it offers Local Authorities further support to staff in the identification of placements for children and young people requiring emergency or planned accommodation. Whilst also offering a specialist forum for accommodation provides to promote their service, which is cost effective. You gain automatic entry to the list if your service is on the Standard Listing with One Stop Social.
