Fostering Changes Programme for independent fostering agencies in Wales

The Fostering Changes Programme was established in 1999 by the Conduct Disorder, Adoption and Fostering National and Specialist Team at the Maudsley Hospital. Following the increasing request from foster carers for more practical solutions to the problems they were experiencing with their looked after children to manage behaviour and avoid disruptions, the team developed and trialled a course with Southwark foster carers. it was received positively and developed into a formal programme of training for foster carers as the Fostering Changes Programme.

The Confidence in Care Consortium has been funded by the Big Lottery to deliver the programme for fostering agencies in Wales
