It was great to see some of our wonderful carers at the Plymouth Support Group on the 27th January which met at the Fostering Foundation’s office in Tavistock. The support groups are held for 3 hours every 3 months and are an opportunity for carers to share their experiences of fostering, seek mutual support and advice from other carers and to receive updates from the staff group about any Fostering Foundation news . It is a little confusing that the group is referred to as the Plymouth group as it is based in Tavistock and is open to all carers but those primarily from Plymouth, Devon and South East Cornwall attend. The group is particularly useful for newer carers who are always keen to hear from the experienced carers.
We look forward to our next group which will be held on the 20th April at 11am.
