New Private Fostering App Launched


A new Private Fostering Awareness App for the City of London is now available.  The App has been thoughtfully designed as a training tool that can be used by both multi-agency professionals and those in the community.  The App is aimed at creating greater levels of 'confidence in competence' to better prepare us all to identify and support children and young people living in such arrangements.
The app provides you with a Digital Certificate which is awarded upon successful completion of a 'Confidence Test'. The course is also accompanied by an About Us, Reference and Twitter section.
