The Purpose for the support groups

We realise that fostering can be 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.

Although these will be informal meetings, sessions may have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who are new to supports groups and may feel awkward about coming along. 

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

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