Support to Foster
We can give you a head start on the road for Fostering...
As a Foster Carer youa re reviewed every year and will receive any training that you need so that you may continue, it's a process of constant assesment, so you will never be 'in at the deep end!'
You will also be allocated a supervising social worker to give you any advice ongoing that you may need,
The Children's Workforce Development Council has published training, support and development standards for Foster Carers, this should help and support you through the first couple of years of fostering.
The CWDC publishes a guide for you, which you can download from their web site: www.cwdcouncil.org.uk/foster-care/standards
