Foster carer support

We have an established programme of specialised training, support and mentoring resources for all our foster carers.

Your support network

You’ll have a lot of experienced people working with you and your foster family – including a dedicated support worker and on call 24/7 emergency cover. We also work with specialists who can offer clinical and educational support.

At The Fostering Company we’re a real community, so away from the formal support system, we hold regular support groups and meet ups with other foster families so you can have a chat in an informal setting. These sessions can be with, or at times without, the assistance of the fostering social work team. This provides much needed opportunity to talk about fostering issues with other carers.

Your support team

  • Supervising social worker and support workers

Downloads & resources

We are proud to be part of the Five Rivers Child Care family, a social enterprise committed to transforming the lives of children and young people, and we work closely together to offer a range of online resources and participation events for the children and young people we work with.

We have worked closely with children and young people to create some useful handbooks. You can find some of them here.
