Foster Carer Welcome Day

Posted on: 25 January 2019

A Welcome Day for new foster carers in Devon was held at the Kenn Centre on the 24 January.  The aim of the day was to bring together new carers from across the county, to introduce them to Fostering Devon staff as well as to a number of the organisations that support carers in their role, including FosterTalk, The Participation Team and Life Long Links.

Once again the feedback from the day was very encouraging, ‘We really enjoyed the informal set up. It was a good way to meet foster carers and professionals and be able to talk through things.’

There was an opportunity for the new foster carers to offer feedback which will help shape the next Welcome Day and make it even better next time.

The event ended with a buffet lunch prepared by the team and goodie bags including gifts from LUSH! and Exeter Golf and County Club.

Thank you to everyone who attended.
