Our 'Welcome Boxes' are a success!

FCC have received fantastic feedback from one of our foster carers about the ‘Welcome Box’ we provide to all new children placed with our carers. Our carer reported that a young person loves the box, and all items within it – and is so fond of it that she keeps it in her bed for when she goes to sleep. She values the sentiments attached to it and feels cared for by our agency.

Bristol Activity Day for foster families!
Foster families in the Bristol area enjoyed a local Activity day this month. Events included Body Zorbing, Archery and a tower building contest with giant Meccano. Pete Johnson, our Captain FCC and KidzRep, brought along arts and crafts materials, giant bubbles, some questionnaires about the children's website and a Frisbee game. The weather was great and everyone enjoyed a picnic lunch together. Families then took turns to participate in all the activities. It was a successful day enjoyed by all with a total of 12 adults and 12 children attending. There were prizes for everyone that attended!

Another successful Family Fun Day!
Thank you to everyone who attended our Family Fun day on Wednesday 29th July - we had a lovely time.

The rain didn’t stop us from watching a wonderful performance of Beauty and the Beast at the Everyman Theatre. Then we went for a BBQ at Y Mochyn Du.

Thank you to our fantastic staff Michelle, Lizzy & Kim for face painting and for everyone making our day another special one to remember!

FCC delivers 'Parent & Child Together' (PACT) training!
The need for more 'parent and child together' (PACT) fostering placements (sometimes referred to as 'mother and baby' placements) appears to be rapidly increasing. However, this is a very specialist area of work as there is often a lot of complexity around the legal status and requirements of the placement.

At FCC we realise that the success and stability of our placements relies on us ensuring that our dedicated foster carers are properly equipped to take on specialist work such as this and that we therefore need to provide them with the necessary support, skills, knowledge and understanding to help them in promoting positive outcomes for children.

Two of our highly experienced 'PACT' approved carers, Maureen and Paula along with their Supervising Social Workers recently assisted the Director for Child Care - Wales in facilitating some training for our foster carers who were interested in being approved to take these types of specialist placements in the future.

Very positive feedback was given about this course and we therefore wanted to say a big 'thank you!' to Maureen and Paula. However, we also wanted to thank the carers who attended to undertake this training course as their enthusiasm to learn about this specialist area of work made it an absolute pleasure to run the course.
