With more children than ever now coming into foster care with complex needs and behavioural problems, it is vitally important to proactively support foster carers in order to maintain placement stability and outcomes for fostered children.
Providing foster carers with the tools and knowledge to manage the complex needs of those in care will ensure local authorities and other agencies develop an informed, motivated and professional workforce.
This kind of support for foster carers will reduce the number of placement breakdowns to ensure foster carers are retained long term.
Those supporting foster carers have the chance to learn from others in their industry and develop new techniques by attending Community Care’s conference on this topic to be held on 23rd April in London and supported by Action for Children. The Supporting Foster Carers Conference is the third in this series of events to help the public, private and voluntary sector to support their professional foster care workforce.
