Happy New Year everyone
Speaking of the start of the school year, there was a post on Facebook about the School and Year Start Up payment. It’s for those caregivers that are receiving the Unsupported Child’s Benefit or Orphan’s Benefit for a child in your care. If you want to find out more, here’s the link
Now the children are back at school, it is a good time to think about our own learning goals this year. As you know, one of the main functions of Fostering Kids NZ is to provide high quality training for caregivers – to support your work providing safe and nurturing homes.
Whether you are new to the caregiving world, or a very experienced caregiver, there is something for everyone in our training schedule. Find out more about it here.
Have you had a chance to have a look at our website lately? We’ve made some changes and updates. As a result of feedback we’ve received from caregivers we’ve now got some information about taking photos of children/young people in care, financial assistance information and a link to the charter of rights for children in care.
There are lots of other changes so have a look around.
We’d love to hear from you if you have any other suggestions of what you think would be valuable on our website.
