Team Fostering is 100% committed to promoting the professionalism of foster care.
All of our foster carers have access to comprehensive training and learning opportunities, which help in ensuring they are able to develop the necessary skills and knowledge needed to provide the best possible outcomes for children and young people.
We have been in negotiation with a clinical psychologist based in the North East with regards to how we could utilise his knowledge, skills and experience to support foster carers and staff with the fostering task. His work is underpinned by attachment and resilience theories which fits with the therapeutic parenting model used by Team Fostering,The Secure Base Model.
We are very excited to have launched a psychological support service in June 2018. The aim of the service is to provide support and information to carers and staff that will enable them to be able totailor care for individual childrento provide an opportunity to recover from their early traumatic experiences.
