Code: SGC/23/0381 FCSG: Support Group for carers caring for children with additional needs.

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/23/0225 Leading Through Change (SGC Managers only)

This half day workshop for managers is aimed at providing the tools and techniques to lead change in the workplace. Covering areas such as leading change positively, personal resilience and emotional intelligence this workshop will help managers identify the methods to support members of staff and effectively deliver workforce change.

Change has become a constant in our working lives. The rate of change continues to increase along with its impact. It all means that it has become even more important that as managers, we ensure that the process of change is handled effectively. Whilst being able to follow a change procedure is vital, so too is the ability to apply the management skills and techniques that address the ‘people aspects’ of change. This course will be suitable for you if you are responsible for managing change and wish to discover or remind yourself of the key considerations, skills and techniques that will give your change a chance of succeeding.
