Safeguarding programme

2-day Safeguarding - this course has been designed to convey key values and principles in the safeguarding of children from harm, abuse and neglect and to provide foster parents with the basic foundation knowledge for their role in caring for vulnerable children on behalf of the state.

Safe caring – safer caring is all about being risk sensible. This course explores how foster parents can safely parent the children in their care, as naturally as possible, whilst being aware of the risks involved for particular children in different situations.

SHADES -Safe Handling and De-escalation – this is a 2-day course provided by an external trainer that helps foster parents deal with challenging behaviour, keeping themselves and others safe.

2 day Online and Social Media Safety - this course deals with all of the areas of online networking, detailing the risks associated with each and providing useful and authoritative advice on how to prevent them.

Recording – recording and record-keeping supports the positive care of children and this course explains why it is critically important that foster parents write a record of their child’s day, when and what to record and how to do this using Family Fostering Partners’ electronic database.
