It was a fantastic opportunity filled with speakers, trainers and guest foster carers who discussed what people could expect and to arm our prospective carers with the tools and knowledge that they would need on their fostering journey.
The courses are facilitated by two members of the Futures For Children social work team and are interactive, mainly involving large and small group work.
We provide case studies and activities to help all that attended understand the various aspects of child development, safeguarding and safer caring, equality and diversity, as well as looking at the legal aspect and how children come into care.
The course provided the opportunity to meet some of our Futures For Children foster carers and one of our sister companies; Time For Children‘s current foster carers.
Not only is this an educational opportunity but also a chance to meet other people starting this fostering journey and build lifelong relationships.
Did we mention there was cake too?
