Male foster carers continually highlight a number of significant issues affecting their role. There is concern about how best to work with children who have been sexually abused, worries about abuse by carers, and unsubstantiated allegations of abuse in foster care. The course explores the idea of the ‘positive male role model’ to identify ways in which men can be more effective carers. This course is for men only and is facilitated by an experienced male foster carer.

Foster Carers have a key role in the gathering and recording of written information about children in their care. They require an awareness of data protection principles, maintaining confidentiality, ownership of records and the knowledge that information may be used in court proceedings. This course will explore these issues and suggest practical techniques to help foster carers in keeping useful and accurate records.
