services for foster carers

A transformative programme supporting the emotional well-being and resilience of carers


A new and essential programme enabling foster carers to build resilience and remain calm (even when it’s all kicking off!) through a new understanding of their own emotional responses.

Linda and her family fostered for 11 years and it is this experience that drew her to develop this brand new training course to support all foster carers and potential adopters. It is designed to support the positive work already underway through Fostering Agencies and Departments to support the well-being of all carers working in this challenging career.

The understanding she shares in all aspects of her work is a little heard of approach to psychology which has positively impacted hundreds of people she has worked with. This approach is woven into the fabric of the “Fostering Emotions” programme.

What’s different about this programme?

  • A highly interactive, 2-day (or 6 session) programme designed in consultation with foster carers for foster carers
  • Looks at the unique challenges arising in the fostering role and environment from a place of first-hand experience
  • Introduces carers to a different understanding of how our human experience is created that can create a ripple effect benefitting the whole family
  • Provides a ‘toolkit’ or methodology that is suitable for all situations and increases a carer’s ability to respond rather than react, whatever is happening
  • Builds on the suite of training already provided by Fostering Agencies/ Services and fills an apparent gap in the TDS for foster care by focusing squarely on the emotional resilience and well-being of carers
  • Delivered by an experienced facilitator drawing on many years as a foster carer
