We also offer training events to prepare you for fostering and to support you through your journey as a foster carer.

These are often blocks of learning where you will be required to attend all dates. Please contact the team to find out more.

Training course to prepare you for fostering

We deliver Skills to Foster in person over two consecutive Saturdays from 9am – 2pm or two consecutive weekdays from 9.30am - 2.30pm at a central location in Telford.  

You are welcome to attend the Skills to Foster training before you apply to foster with us. Please get in touch if you would like to join the next one. We will have an intial conversation with you and arrange to visit your home before you start the course, to answer any initial questions. 

You need to attend both daytime events. If you are applying as a couple, you will both need to attend all sessions. Please contact us to discuss the options that would suit you best.
