Men in Foster Care

In Men in Foster Care training, we will explore the challenges that men may face and also the value they can bring. 

During training, we will cover:

  • Providing carers with confidence in all aspects of fostering
  • Highlighting the unique position men in foster care are in and how they are supporting children to gain positive attachments and with building healthy relationships with men
  • Exploring struggles men face in foster care
  • Understanding and getting an insight into the allegations process
  • Importance of safer care policy
  • Learning how to support children in a safe manner without restricting the carer

This course meets the Training, Support and Development Standards as set out in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011. It also meets standards set out by Ofsted.

The course will run from 10 am - 1 pm followed by lunch at 1 pm for those who want to stay and talk. If you have any questions please contact your Supervising Social Worker or the Learning and Development team.
