We offer support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One of your main sources of support will be your supervising social worker who will be in regular contact with you to offer advice, support and ensure that children are receiving a good quality of care whilst they are being looked after by the local authority.
Other professionals involved in caring for the child will also have a role in supporting you around matters such as health and education. We also run support groups for foster carers and also for your children which many people find enjoyable and helpful. As a Swiis foster carer you will receive free membership to the Fostering Network, a specialist support organisation to help foster carers.
