Thanks to all the carers who came along to the first support group of 2019. We are thankful to have such a great team of hard working and dedicated carers.
Regular support groups provide our carers much needed opportunity to talk about fostering issues with other carers. Foster carer support groups are attended by carers who have a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise which they have accumulated through many years in fostering. These carers can offer valuable support to less experienced foster carers. Formal and informal feedback from support groups helps to identify and inform further training and support needs.
