Learning, Support & Development

Providing you with the tools to be a successful Foster Carer and effective team member

Fostering a child or a young person is a complex task which requires a positive team ethic. We know that family life can be very demanding and that time is very valuable. It is difficult to fit in all of the things that we need to do every day without adding more to the list. So, here at CCB we have adopted a flexible approach to learning that is able to adapt to you, whilst still providing you with the skills and development opportunities you will need as a registered Foster Carer.
