We understand that carers are a critical element of their foster/kinship child or young person’s care team. So, ensuring carers are cared for by their priority partners, and connected to other carers is a priority for our organisation. CF&KC-SA offers opportunities for carers to connect through regular annual events such the recharge and family fun events. These events, together with information about local support groups and other networks, offer carers a range of opportunities to share the achievements, joys, challenges and demands involved in providing care for children and young people under guardianship orders.

Examples of our connection events include our:

·       Family fun events.

·       Siblings’ day at Latitude.

·       Recharge event

·       Carer Information sessions

·       Training opportunities

·       Reference groups

·       Support groups such as the Grief & Loss Support Group

"Excellent event. Inspirational speakers. Great day and certainly went away with more knowledge than I arrived with. Also a great networking opportunity for our carers and staff alike. Very happy customer. I am now a member of CFC and look forward to supporting your cause :)"
