Foster carer practice meetings and Support Groups

We run foster carer practice meetings and support groups at various locations across our catchment area so that our carers can easily meet up with other local foster carers for support and training and to share their experiences.

Ongoing Training

All fp.c foster carers are provided with access to ongoing training to enable them to develop their existing child care skills to the highest possible level. These training workshops are run at various locations across our catchment area. Our training workshops are led by in-house staff and external trainers with specialist expertise. We also provide funding for our foster carers to attend national and regional fostering events or child care related classes at local colleges. We also provide on-line training for foster carers who like to work with this medium.
