Continuing care can lead to young people potentially remaining with their carers until they are 21 or beyond depending on circumstances. Foster carers have primarily supported children through to the ages of 16 or 18 and in some rare cases for longer. The skills of a foster carer are therefore mainly centred on looking after children.
This training is being created to help support carers in a very different role.
What the training will cover
This training will explore the differences for carers between working with children and young adults, examining the legal differences in terms of their rights, including:
- what they can legally do aged 16 and 18
- how and why ‘house rules’ may differ
- how we as carers support young adults to make choices around education and employment and help them develop the key skills they will require as adults to move on to independence.
