24/7 Fostering support in Cornwall
We have over 70 extraordinary carers within the Cornwall area that we work with and support on a daily basis. Everyone has the opportunity to attend local support groups on a regular basis, whether you’re a foster carer, foster child or a birth child, it’s a great chance for everyone to build relationships in the wider FCA family across the region. Each of our carers has their own Supervising Social Worker who is there to support you throughout your fostering journey. As well as the support you receive from regional staff, you will also have access to a therapist. This is someone who works with all families directly to offer tailored therapeutic support to meet the complex needs of the child/young person.
Have fun with FCA Cornwall
At FCA Cornwall having fun is something we do really well! We regularly hold local activities to offer children, young people and foster carers the opportunity to have fun and socialise – these activities really help to bring the FCA south western family all together. During the summer and half term, we put on various events at local attractions, Crealy Adventure Park, Woodlands Family Theme Park, The Flambards Experience, The Camel Trail, Clip and Climb to name but a few. As well as offering tickets to the pantomime at Christmas, we also have two award ceremonies every year to celebrate the great achievements of all of our young people.
