Event description

Description

Facing an allegation of abuse or neglect is something that some foster carers will unfortunately experience during their fostering career. This is inevitably a distressing time for everyone involved. Therefore, as part of the Fosterline Wales outreach programme, The Fostering Network Wales will be delivering four allegations workshops across Wales to help inform foster carers of what to do if an allegation is made.

The workshop will aim to provide foster carers with a greater understanding of allegations in foster care and assist them to consider how everyone involved in fostering can play a part in minimising the incidence of allegations of abuse.

Aims and objectives

The aim of the workshop will be to enable foster carers to develop their understanding of allegations against foster carers and the procedures for managing them.

At the end of the workshop you will:

  • Gain a balanced and realistic understanding of allegations in foster care.
  • Develop an understanding of the process for managing allegations and serious concerns about foster carer’s practice/standards of care.
  • Have knowledge of how and where to access help and support when an allegation is made.
  • Consider how all involved in fostering can play a part in minimising the incidence of allegations of abuse and develop coping strategies for when they occur.
  • Look at the policy and procedures for managing allegations in line with the latest Fostering Regulations & National Minimum Standards.

Please note that these workshops are open to foster carers only.
