Your assessment is heard at the Fostering Company fostering panel, who approve you as a foster carer. Areas of support and development that we feel you require will be discussed with you, as well as how The Fostering Company will ensure that you receive support. Training will be provided to assist you in meeting the specific needs of the child/young person in your care.
There is an expectation that you attend and complete the Training, Support and Development Standards for Foster Carers within 12 months of approval.
Details of all courses can be obtained from our learning opportunities calendar. Carers are provided with a range of venues/times and training methods suitable to their individual needs.
