What support do I get?

We want to make sure you are fully supported as a Foster Carer and won’t be expecting you to go it alone. We provide:

 

  • A Supervising Social Worker who will provide regular supervision and contact, and who will also support you at meetings about the child in you care
  • A ‘buddy’ Foster Carer who can provide advice and guidance
  • Regular training opportunities, including mandatory training that you must attend
  • Regular support groups where you can meet other Foster Carers and share experiences
  • A regular newsletter packed full of information and resources
  • Allowances for the child/young person to cover costs whilst they are in your care
  • A fee for you
  • Kids Who Share activities for your own children, if you have them

 

There is also a Bedford Foster Carers Association, which is a useful resource and who run regular events and activities.
