Code: SGC/20/096 Total Respect (EVENT FULL) (Cancelled)

Total Respect is a national training course, designed with the help of young people in care, about being in care. It aims to help adults understand the needs and experiences of children and young people in care, how we can listen to children and young people, act on their wishes and feelings, and what we need to do to make sure this is effective. Total Respect is unique in that care-experienced young people co-deliver the training. It is, therefore, an excellent opportunity for staff and counsellors to learn from young people themselves whilst developing their skills and knowledge to actively promote childrenðs rights and participation.

Code: SGC/19/794 Launch Pad Session 5: Dedicated Induction, Training and Support Group for Connected Carers including Special Guardians


What is it? This is a new dedicated Induction, Training and Support Group for Connected Carers, Including Special Guardians
Why are we running it? We recognise that your situation is very different to that of main stream foster carers. The new role that you find yourself in now, is often not a pathway you may have planned on taking. Unlike foster carers, you are thrown in at the deep end without having had a course to prepare you for what lies ahead, and how ‘The System’ works. This course aims to do that as well as recognise the particular difficulties that you as ‘Kinship Carers’, whatever your role, face.
How will it run? There will be six sessions, each lasting approximately 2-2.5 hours, which will take place over the course of a year. It is hoped that you will attend all six, but as new carers arrive, they can join the programme at any stage.

The sessions will be led in the main by Social workers from our team. There will be light refreshment of tea and coffee provided at each session, but it would be rather nice if we could take it in turns to bring and share some food. The first session will be catered for, but we will discuss how this works for future sessions at the end of our first meeting.

This session will focus on Attachment
