We will train and support you every step of the way, and once you are approved you will be able to take part in a vast range of training courses to help you develop and grow in your role as a foster carer.
Training courses are run by friendly, experienced professionals and include different topics such as behaviour, attachment, health, disability, communication, drugs and alcohol, internet safety, life story work – to name a few!
You will be put in touch with local foster carer support groups and there will be support for your own children if needed, and you will be invited to join the Northamptonshire Foster Carers’ Association (NFCA) and be given membership to national fostering organisation, The Fostering Network.
“The training and support you get as a foster carer is really useful and helps you build your skills, there’s so much to learn. What I enjoy most about it is meeting other foster carers and sharing experiences with them.
We all give each other advice and support and it’s nice to know others understand and can help with the different challenges you can go through as a foster carer.”
