We know that foster carers are key to supporting the emotional wellbeing of children in care; but not enough is known about what kind of training or programmes best support carers to achieve this task. This study, which is run by University College London (UCL), in collaboration with a number of other universities and local authority partners, focuses on investigating the effectiveness of one promising form of support for foster carers: the Reflective Fostering Programme.
The Reflective Fostering Study is offering opportunities for local authorities and independent fostering agencies to receive fully funded training and support for foster carers. Would your organisation be interested?
