Foster care newsletter

The best tips, tools and tales from the frontline are in the monthly foster care newsletter.

We've pulled together some of the best tips, tools and tales from the frontline, along with useful advice, guidance and resources to help foster carers and their supervisors complete the Training, Support and Development (TSD) Standards.  

We recognise the importance of all the work that foster carers and their supervising social workers do and we're keen to offer our support. That's why we're producing this newsletter which offers creative ideas and examples of good practice that will help you to implement the standards.

The foster care newsletter will shortly become part of CWDC News, which will replace all our existing e-bulletins.To find out more,register with us.
