Training & Events
Welcome Foster Care is committed to providing high quality foster care services for children.
We believe that foster carers play a crucial role in promoting good outcomes for children in their care and should have opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge – as professionals – in the foster care service.
The demands on foster carers are increasing as more complex placements are required. Welcome Foster Care believes that meeting the needs of children and young people requires a highly skilled and trained workforce.
Furthermore, the National Minimum Standards for Fostering Services Standard 20 states that foster carers receive the training and development they need to carry out their role effectively.
To speak to one of our team members about our training programmes call us on 020 3397 3332.
We have a comprehensive training programme in place and some of the courses that we deliver include:
- Skills to Foster
- First Aid
- Managing Challenging Behaviour
- Parent and Child placements
- Child Protection
- Safe Caring
- Triple Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P)
Alongside training courses, you will be invited to attend support group sessions which is your chance to learn from more experienced foster carers, fostering social workers and other professionals.
We constantly have various events, some of which include training and information sessions for current foster carers and for those interested in fostering.
