Providing Valuable Support for Foster Carers
The NUPFC is the first government-approved and certified trade union supporting and protecting foster carers.
Whilst the fostering of a child or children is certainly one of the most rewarding things you can do, it is no doubt without its challenges.
If you are an experienced fosterer, you will know that sometimes things happen that may place you in a situation where you really don’t know where to turn for independent and trustworthy advice.
