Training and SupportTraining and Support
Although fostering is a rewarding role, there are times when it will be challenging too and we realise the importance of training and support to equip our foster cares to be the best they can be. You won’t be on your own at any point, we will be with you every step of the way.
Click here to view our current training brochure.
Some of the support on offer includes:
  • Regular training opportunities including our excellent 'Skills to Foster' training where you meet other new foster carers.
  • A dedicated social worker who'll support you throughout your whole fostering journey.
  • A buddy system when you get approved as a carer then you can link in with support from an experienced foster carer.
  • Support groups with other foster carers, currently meeting online but these will return to face-to-face at the earliest opportunity. We also run support groups for your birth children during some of the school holidays.
  • Support from child psychologists to help you meet the specific needs of children in your care and support from a specialist nurse who oversees the health needs of our cared for children.
  • A monthly fostering newsletter sent out to our database with updates, news and ways to get involved.

For 2020/21, we will be adding:

  • Annual celebration evening and social events throughout the year for foster carers and their families.
  • Additional foster carer incentives and specialised training opportunities.
