As part of our ongoing training and support package to our carers the following course is being run:
Equality and Diversity Training
The Fostering Foundation opposes any form of discrimination against any individual or group on grounds of race, gender, religion, disability, age, status, or sexual orientation. The aim of the Equality and Diversity training is to refresh knowledge and raise awareness of equality and diversity in the context of foster care and working with children and young people. The objectives are to:
- Define ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’
- Explore inequalities that exist in the UK
- Consider the legal aspects
- The application of equality and diversity into foster care practice
This training is part of the ‘Mandatory’ training that all foster carers are required to attend.
