This workshop is a partnership between Fostering Kids NZ and Child Youth and Family.
These workshops are free and open primarily to anyone in New Zealand who is caring for someone else’s child not in the care of their birth parents. This includes agency caregivers, respite carers, and family/whānau caregivers who care for children unable to live with their birth parents. Limited places are also open to caregiver social workers and Non-Government Organisation (NGO) representatives that support carers.
Booking is essential and can be done at http://schedule.fosteringkids.net/schedule.php
