Guide: The fostering process

Support and training

Once you have been approved as a foster carer, you will be supported by your supervising social worker.

We will continue to help you deliver the highest standards of care by providing professional support and training.  You will be expected to attend a minimum of six training events and six support group activities per year throughout your career with us.

Our Children’s Placement Support Team helps improve placement stability for children and young people with complex and challenging behaviours.
