Knowledge exchange day for residential child care practitioners and foster carers
This unique event brought together foster carers and residential Child Care Practitioners to share knowledge and experience. It was planned and delivered as a result of a partnership between Care Council Wales, CASCADE and the Looked After Children Network.
The day's aim was to:
share learning and knowledge in order to improve outcomes for Looked After Children & Care Leavers
recognise the unique roles of Foster Carers and Residential Child Care Practitioners in contributing to meeting the needs of those children and young people
provide an opportunity to explore the potential for developing a framework common to both Foster Carers and Residential Child Care Practitioners
celebrate the commitment and contribution made by Foster Carers and Residential Child Care Practitioners to the lives of looked after children and young people
