For Foster Carers we offer:
Professional Development of our Foster Carers
We have a thorough vetting and selecting process for our Foster Carers. Our procedures follow best practice standards, which includes prospective foster careers attending the ‘Skills to Foster’ training.
We offer a comprehensive Foster Carer’s Handbook which offers advice and guidance on all aspects of the fostering role. This gives clear information on required competencies, standards and expectations.
As a foster carer for 1st Affinity, you will be encouraged to share your experiences with new carers and reflect on the strengths and skills you have developed.
Where existing foster carers have chosen to move to our small agency we follow best practice principles and protocols.
