Are you raising a previously looked after child under a special guardianship order? You could be eligible to receive funding to take part in this Raising Kinship Children course.

Looking after a child who has had a difficult start in life can provide safety and healing for the child, as well as being immensely fulfilling for the carers. But it can also be a stressful and complex experience for both the carer and the child. In these situations, targeted support, peer networking and training can make a huge difference. 

Topics covered include:

  • understanding attachment
  • how children develop new relationships
  • using positive attention to change behaviour
  • the use of praise and rewards
  • clear commands and boundaries
  • the use of ignoring
  • effective discipline and logical consequences
  • problem solving with children.
