We offer all our foster carers the opportunity to attend activities as a whole family, including local support groups and our annual awards ceremony, where we celebrate long-service, achievements and the role foster carers' own children play in the fostering journey.
Support for your children
We offer support for your own children if you have them. They will have access to our M8s group where they can meet other children of foster carers and have fun while sharing their experiences. M8s group sessions include things like trips to activity centres, bowling and craft sessions.
Discounts on family activities
As one of our foster carers you can get our specially selected Freedom Card. This entitles you to discounts on a range of family activities at venues including our leisure centres, Adventure Valley, the Durham Climbing Centre, Tweddle Children's Farm, Planet Leisure, the Centre for Life.
