Diverse Care: Safe fostering

Providing safety and security for children in foster care

Providing a good foster environment for a child means offering safety and security. Diverse Care were quick to approach Project Screen by Prenetics and ask for a gold-standard execution of COVID-19 testing for both families and staff. Timing was everything ahead of an expected increase in foster demand from September, 2020.

"Our mission is to ensure the children are kept safe. When we’re moving children between households we need to ensure that they’re kept as safe as possible. Part of that is to ensure that our families are free of the virus."

Keith Gorman, Director Diverse Care

Project objectives


Diverse Care wanted to provide the highest level of testing possible to their foster families and teams by providing both antigen RT-PCR and antibody testing. This testing format would be conducted at two sites nationwide.

The process


Project Screen by Prenetics deployed our Mobile Testing Solution—our specialist vehicles—to the Diverse Care sites. The antigen swab test was conducted outside while the antibody blood test was conducted indoors in private rooms.

Results


In two locations, we were able to test over 100 participants in 3 days. In doing so, we were able to provide vital information to Diverse Care that would allow more families to offer safe homes to foster children.
