This training is being created to help support carers in a very different role. 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 until they are 16 or 18 and in some rare cases for longer; the skills of a foster carer are therefore primarily around looking after children. This training will explore the differences for carers in working with children and young adults and look at the legal differences in terms of their rights. What legally they can 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.
