What is Fostering

Fostering is caring for someone else’s child in your own home. Foster carers look after babies or children and young people who are often distressed about being separated from their family, so carers need to be understanding about children’s feelings and meet their needs. Attending training will help you equip yourself with the necessary skills needed to;

  • Keep children healthy and safe
  • Develop self-worth, life skills, interests and hobbies
  • Promote educational attainment
  • Encourage positive relationships with friends and family.
