COVID-19 support and advice for foster carers

We understand that the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic may be creating additional stress for our foster carers. As always, we are here to help and support you.

We will update this page with resources and updates on how we will support you throughout this situation.

Support for foster carers

If you require any additional support please contact your senior social worker or team manager in the first instance.  

All Trust foster carers should be receiving regular email updates. If you are not, please contact your senior social worker.
