Facing an allegation of abuse or neglect is something that some foster carers will unfortunately experience during their fostering career. This is inevitably a distressing time for everyone involved. Therefore, as part of the Fosterline Wales outreach programme, The Fostering Network Wales will be delivering four allegations workshops across Wales to help inform foster carers of what to do if an allegation is made.

The workshop will aim to provide foster carers with a greater understanding of allegations in foster care and assist them to consider how everyone involved in fostering can play a part in minimising the incidence of allegations of abuse.

Designed for foster carers, social workers and designated teachers, this free masterclass developed by The Fostering Network and Young Minds (https://youngminds.org.uk/) will explore these risk factors, examining their potential on young people; and how the team around the child can help reduce risk, build resilience and support them in becoming happy adults.

Male foster carers continually highlight a number of signficant 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 foser 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 male foster carers only and is facilitated by an experienced male foster carer.
