About this course

Men can often be an undervalued resource in the Foster Care environment and a possibly neglected group that don’t always get a chance to air their issues and be heard.

In an all-male setting we explore the feelings, anxieties and difficulties related to being a male carer.

What does Men in Fostering Training Course cover?

The workshop gives the men time that is solely aimed at them, where they can speak openly and confidentially about their experiences with a group that probably have or will go through similar challenges at some point.

The men in fostering course is proving a very popular session and the carers who have attended have said it was a great experience.

” Spot on! Nice relaxed course that gave us an opportunity to open up”

“Really good to have a chance to just talk with other guys about fostering”

Who is our Men in Fostering Training Course for?
