We are committed to providing the best possible service to the children and young people in our care, and ensuring that our foster carers have access to high quality training, support and guidance.

This Electronic handbook is designed to be a working handbook for all foster carers, with useful links which signpost you to more information and support for you and the children and young people.  We plan to continue to develop the handbook and your suggestions are welcome.

Please take time to browse the handbook and in particular the Useful Resources and the links to other websites, such as the Get Ready for Adult Life toolkit which helps you to prepare young people for independence.

Content is accessible via the buttons and subsection links on the right-hand side. To see all of the content in one list please use the Site Map.
