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).
We would like to invite you to a virtual briefing to allow the Bromford Directors to update Members on operational issues such as:
• Development programme – progress and future plans
• Significant asset management programmes – progress and plans
• Welfare reform impact on Bromford residents
• Housing management, independent living service and community development updates
• Digital Strategy
This will be delivered via Zoom and hosted by Suzanne Pearson. Handouts are attached for this training session.

A community based course to increase awareness and challenge stigma about mental health that participants can draw upon in their day-to-day lives and work.
The views of people with ‘lived’ experience of emotional or mental health issues are central to informing the course content as well as up to date research evidence. This course is currently free to everyone.
The course is suitable for anyone including staff and volunteers from a variety of settings working with Adults, and/or Children and Families, who wish to learn more about mental health. It consists of a mixture of factual presentation, small group work and large group discussion within agreed ground rules of confidentiality and respecting each other’s points of view. There are extensive handouts available
