Organisation: Fostering Digital Skills for Life
The Fostering Network is working with Internet Matters and the University of East Anglia on a new project, Fostering Digital Skills for Life to create a new training course for foster carers. We were pleased to consult with the Care Leavers National Movement as part of our focus groups to co-create and refine the content, making sure that it best represents real-life experiences. Working with CLNM has helped bring the topics in the course to life and was an essential part of developing the project.
Organisation: The LIMITLESS study
We aim to improve how life story work is offered to adolescents with care experience. We feel that there is no clear guidance on how or when life story work should be best undertaken, by whom and why it improves (or not) the mental health of care adolescents with experience.
Organisation: Changing Minds
Changing Minds supports the staff at House Project’s across the UK, so they understand the needs of the young people they support. They also work with other organisations, like Action for Children (a Fostering Charity), schools, Local Authorities, and Together for Adoption. "While we do our best, we don’t know everything, and we know we could always do better. That’s why we work alongside Expert Advisors, who have experienced the care system. They help us see the world differently. With their help, we learn and grow"
