Support groups

Support groups are an ideal place for you to:

  • share your experiences
  • discuss good practice
  • learn from each other.

You need to attend a minimum of 8 support groups each year.

New foster carers have their own support groups for the first year but are also welcome to attend any of the other support groups we run.

There are also specific support groups available for birth children of families who foster.

For more information about the times and locations of support groups please speak to your fostering social worker.
