The Purpose for the support groups



We realise that fostering can be really difficult at times. Perhaps the only people who really understand it are other foster carers and so therefore we want to give you a place to meet up.

There will be biscuits and/or cake, coffee, tea, and an opportunity for an informal chat at all of the meetings.

Although these will be informal meetings, each session will have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who don’t know anyone and feel awkward about coming along to a new meeting, to feel that they won’t be left alone on the side-lines.

Sometimes there will be speakers and topics as requested by the group, this will hopefully make it as relevant to your fostering as you like.

These sessions should be recorded on your Personal Development Plan (PDP).

Code: SGC/21/0537 Remote working: Managing Remote Teams

The Workforce Development team have developed a series of bitesize virtual courses for managers and employees to deal with the practical changes to working practices brought about by Covid-19 and maintain and build wellbeing and resilience. This webinar is for managers who are managing remotely. For many of us the workplace has totally transformed with anyone who can working at home and having to adjust to remote working as both a short and long term reality. You may have been using technology to support remote working for a long time but it may be a new prospect for managers to lead teams who are now largely or fully working remotely. In this session we will focus on: the key principles of remote working, the challenges, benefits, and leadership traits of a remote manager, how to support individuals who are feeling a sense of isolation, and how to best use the technology available so that you can make remote working a success.

This interactive and engaging webinar will be facilitated by Deb Parsons and Emma Ford and you will get many of the benefits of attending a face to face session.

Once you have requested a place on this webinar, you will be sent an MS Teams appointment with further information.

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience.

There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.

Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone.  Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
