Fostering Agency registration: this offers access to upload and update anonymised data related to their foster carers’ and their Agency marketing profile. Fostering Agencies cannot access other Fostering Agency carers' details

Placing Authority registration: will allow access to the anonymised foster carers’ details and the contact details of the foster careers' respective Fostering Agency to which they are registered.

Public: will have no access to any data relating to carers but will be able to access Fostering Agency details
