Foster carers

Aim

This course will outline the multiple uses of the National Minimum Standards. They may be used by providers and staff in self-assessment of their services; they provide a basis for the induction and training of staff and carers; they can be used by parents, children and young people as a guide to what they should expect a fostering service to provide and to do as a minimum; and they can provide guidance on what is required when setting up a fostering service.

This course aims to provide foster carers with a greater understanding of the standards and regulations and the ways in which they guide and inform the care they provide to children and young people.
