No-one can provide you with a better insight into what it’s like to foster than someone who’s done it before. That’s one of the reasons we set up Carer Connect.
Carer Connect is an online forum just for FCA carers. It gives you free and instant access to information and advice right when you need it – day or night, 365 days a year. It’s easy to use and jam-packed with all the support you need.
What’s on Carer Connect?
- Details about local support groups and foster carer forums
- Join an online fostering community with a discussion forum and blog
- Details of activities, training and events in your local area
- CHARMS, where you can track the progress of children in your care
- The Foster Carer Handbook
