We hold a variety of events throughout the year which include every part of you family and any Looked After Children. This includes training days, carer support groups, children’s events, carer consultations and Christmas events.
Our training programme is comprehensive and delivered locally by our team of trainers. It covers a wide variety of topics designed to help you acquire the specific skills required to look after children and young people. We also have a series of online training courses you can access remotely from the comfort of your own home.
Carer support groups are run regionally by our team of Social Workers and provide a forum for our foster carers and Social Workers to discuss issues and practice. They usually take the form of a coffee morning and provide a relaxed and confidential environment for discussion. Our carers also have the opportunity to meet with our Senior Management Team at our yearly Carer Consultations where they get the opportunity to discuss local and national issues.
Vox is our children’s consultation group giving support and advice to both our Looked After Children and our foster carers own children. These groups enable the children and young people to have fun, learn new activities and meet other children within NFA.
