A new publication to support young people accessing higher education, Pathways to Further and Higher Education for Looked After and Care Experienced Young People, is being launched this week at The Fostering Network’s annual Tick the Box event which is taking place on Thursday 29 October at the Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast.

The Fostering Network has partnered with Disability Matters to put together a free online learning resource for foster carers.

The Disability Matters for Foster Carers learning package comprises eight courses focussed on issues relevant to foster carers of children and young people with disabilities. The package provides the perfect starting point for developing your understanding about the health and wellbeing of children and young people with disabilities.
