The potential career paths into different aspects of the care sector make fostering a great profession in terms of a first-hand introduction to social care. Communicating with different types of professionals like doctors, social workers an teachers help to gain more of an understanding to the wider effects of fostering.
We are keen to keep our foster carers up to date on regulations and issues relevant to their career. Our customised in-house training provides information presented by our team of social workers in an encouraging and child-friendly environment.
We are always looking of ways to help support our foster carers too, and will offer 1-2-1 sessions for some that we believe need specialised training.
Whilst we offer a schedule of topics, we also encourage transparency with our foster carers so that they feel confident requesting additional support.
