What to expect.
The courses cover the following modules:
Overview and Providing Foster Care
Care for the Child: Understanding Trauma and Attachment
Care for the Child: 'Healing' Parenting Skills
Bringing a Child Into Your Home: Considerations and Impacts
Self Development and Self Care
Leaving Care: Policies, Course Review and Evaluation
Although we cover a great deal of important and serious information, the style of the course is informal and relaxed. It's a time for you to learn new things but also to share your views and listen to other considering fostering too.

Course 1: Saturday 8th, 15th & 22nd February
Course 2: Saturday 6th, 13th & 20th June
Course 3: Saturday 5th, 12th, & 19th September
