Recruitment and Assessment of Foster Carers

Training in action
Training in action

In April our team conducted the first of eight workhsops this year for staff from two Social Protection Centres (orphanages).

This training - composed of 11 modules - will enable them to become family placement workers who can recruit, assess and train suitable foster carers from the local community, as well as place, support and monitor children as they move into families.

This workshop covered the ‘Recruitment and Assessment of Foster Carers’. Research tells us that in terms of outcomes for children growing up in institutional care who are recruited as foster carers is at least as important as the training, support and supervision provided to foster carers once they are approved. This makes the recruitment and assessment processes crucial to an effective fostering service. It is an extremely important process to ensure that all children and young people placed in foster care are safe, secure and can reach their full potential.

The training which took place in Hanoi over three days was attended by 36 people.

Over the second half of the year, the staff will also receive tailored, on-site training every two weeks to walk them through their first placements.

Our ultimate goal is for the two Social Protection Centres to launch successful family placement programmes – becoming the first government-run orphanages in the country to begin the process of moving orphaned and abandoned children into local foster families. This will serve as inspiration and a blueprint for all other orphanages across Vietnam.

Once again, thank you for your support and staying connected to our work.
