Fancy trying Grass Bowls! Followed by social drinks afterwards.
This support group will be led by Chris Hill (Foster Carer Development and Training Officer) at:
YATE AND DISTRICT BOWLS CLUB
Sunnyside Lane Playing Fields
Fundamentally, the game involves propelling a number of bowls towards a small target ball (known as a jack). The person or team whose bowls are nearest to the jack counts them as shots. At the end of the game (determined several ways) the person or team with the most shots wins

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)
• This new practice workshop will cover the key aspects of preparing for effective supervision. There will be dedicated time for practice reflection and exploring how to ask your supervisor key reflective questions, to maximise your opportunity to get to the significant issues and discussions about your children and young people.
• We will introduce some ‘quick wins’ and you will have an opportunity to share your quick wins with colleagues and engage in meaningful peer discussion about what helps.
• We will also be exploring how we communicate what we need from supervision in terms of our own learning, career development, how you learn and well-being.
• After attendance and completion of the feedback form, you will receive a certificate. This can support your CPD.
