We offer foster care training for all types of people who would like to get involved with fostering. No matter what your background or experience level, we have classes that will help you learn the basics, and feel confident with your new skills.

Fostering is rewarding, and we want you to know how much your efforts will impact the lives of young people in need. That’s why we offer free foster care training to help you learn about the ins and outs of life as a foster parent.

You’ll learn about your rules and your responsibilities, along with how to provide a safe and loving environment in which children can grow. Training sessions are led by licensed staff members who provide information on fostering policies, procedures, fostering allowances, and more.

Similar to how every child is different, so is every foster parent. We’ll never take a one-size-fits-all approach to foster care training. Instead, we do our best to accommodate your individual needs. You’ll always have a personalized training plan that meets the specific challenges you face as a foster parent – no matter how big or small they may be!

Help to Heal

Help a young person heal -it’s as simple as that. Heal a young person’s soul with your encouragement, guidance and love. Provide safety, stability and care so the child can grow emotionally, mentally and physically.

Apple Fostering is committed to helping young people heal through training foster carers so the child can develop in a loving home environment, whilst providing help for parents or guardians if requested by social services. We provide free of charge comprehensive training packages that will show foster carers the most effective ways to help a young person heal.

Foster care training with Apple Fostering is extremely useful for people who want to be foster parents but have no prior experience, as well as those who already work in the social care sector and would like to gain additional skills before becoming an approved foster parent themselves.

Fostering has always been a rewarding career choice – offering real job satisfaction and the opportunity to make a positive difference to young lives – but we recognise that sometimes it can be difficult to juggle your commitments as a carer and as a worker.
