Training

For any job role, having the right skills and knowledge is vital to be successful and fostering is no different.

At Lambeth we're committed to providing our foster carers with a wide range of training and development opportunities, so they can be the best they can be and handle any situation they might encounter.

Training is offered at the start of your time with us through our induction programme, then on a regular basis.

Learning can be accessed in many ways, it could be:

  • in one of our buildings
  • one-on-one with your social worker
  • online.

Learning from others

As a Lambeth foster carer, you'll also have access to a local peer group so your personal development will be enhanced by sharing experiences with others, and receiving mentoring from experienced carers.

Day or night, you are never on your own. From your induction to your first placement, we will put a wide range of support in place for you. Gabi describes some of the support offered by Lambeth.

Make a difference to a child’s life
