We are offering kinship foster carers from each of the Health and Social Care Trusts the opportunity to participate in a one night residential with a focus on improving health and well-being in a relaxed environment. Attendees will also have the opportunity to gain an OCN Level 1 Award in Healthy Living.

The strategy will support foster carers to better understand how the education system works, and to feel better equipped to engage, support, and educationally challenge the children young people in their care. It also calls for foster carers to be viewed as an equal part of the team around the child to ensure they are able to support the ambitions and aspirations of the children in their care.
