Training and Support

We are currently following Government guidelines to prevent and limit the spread of Covid-19.

As of Monday 23rd March 2020 all Adoption and Foster Care Training will be stood down until further notice.

If you have a need for training or advice regarding a specific area please contact your supervising social worker.

We appreciate these are very trying and difficult times and assure you we will do everything possible to provide you with the support and guidance that you need.


Becoming an Adoptive Parent or Foster Carer is an invaluable decision. We appreciate that each carer or adopter brings their own set of unique skills and life experiences to the process and we hope to complement those with specialist and essential training and support throughout the process.

There are training opportunities throughout Northern Ireland for both Adoptive Parents and Foster Carers.
