Growing Carer Capacity and Building on Strengths

More than ever before, we need to be working with carers to empower them to be the type of carer they want to be, to support their expertise and build on their strengths to develop their learning, skills and capacity. This also includes planning and supporting potential guardians and prospective adoptive parents.

This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to work with carers to: unpack a carer’s motivation, level of commitment and what type of carer they would like to be, define their goals to achieve better outcomes for children and young people, build stronger relationships with carers and increase their confidence and capacity in the context of their role.

Date of next course: This course is currently in development and a date has not yet been programmed. Contact the Fostering NSW team to express interest in attending in the future.
