Fostering Mentoring Academy

You will have access to our Fostering Academy both pre-approval and after you become a foster carer. This offers an induction to the service including resources, guides, ongoing support and training. As part of our mentoring programme, you will have ongoing support from an experienced foster carer ‘buddy'. Your mentor will be there to listen and offer advice and support when you need it.

For more detailed information about this training please see our foster carer learning and development programme.

"Fostering with Lancashire brings the sound of children's' laughter back into our house. It is so important to give the children a loving stable place where they can be free to express themselves. The team at Lancashire make sure that you never feel 'out on your own'. They are always there with help, advice and the fostering mentor service really helped us with our first time."

Pat and Jenny, foster carers.
