Fostering - What training and support will I receive?

All Foster Carers must attend a preparation course and participate in a thorough assessment, in order to establish their suitability to be approved carers.

Training leading to SVQ qualifications is offered to all our foster carers. In addition carers are able to access relevant Social Care Staff training courses.

All our foster carers have their own dedicated support worker to help and advise when needed.

You will be fully supported by an experienced team with the resources available to the Moray Council.

You will also be part of an association of local carers who meet regularly with their own support groups.

You will have access to 24-hour support and advice through our Out of Hours team.

You will be able to access the Council’s own large information resources.
