Support groups

Support groups are led by you for you to bring your own topics of conversation. There will also be specific sessions giving you the chance to discuss issues with the Fostering Team Manager and Supervising Social Workers in addition to gaining vital peer support and advice.

Due to the implementation of the new Learning Management System there will be no courses, support groups or briefings taking place in April.   The training schedule for 2022/23 is currently being planned and will be released over the coming weeks - training is anticipated to recommence in May 2022.

We are currently working on a schedule of support groups. To book onto a support group please email wdsupport@gateshead.gov.uk


The The foster caring training requirements document (PDF) [418KB] (opens new window) will remind you of the mandatory and core training requirements and the number of training courses, support groups and briefings you are expected to participate in annually.
