Welcome to this core training session, covering Equality and Diversity. It is essential that you integrate these concepts into your fostering role, so that you can communicate mindfully with children and young people, parents and fellow professionals.
In this session, you will reflect upon your own perception of Equality and Diversity and your experiences related to fostering, alongside exploring current issues and dilemmas and the influence of legislation and policy.
Please also review Chrysalis Care's organisational policies related to Equality and Diversity.
Welcome to the Chrysalis Care Learning Space. My name is Joanna Oliver and I have worked with Chrysalis Care since they were founded by Lynda and Lou Boden in 1997. I hold a Masters degree in Therapeutic Child Care and outside of Chrysalis Care, I am a Senior University Lecturer. I look forward to helping you in your journey to fostering excellence.
