National Caregiver Training Programme

The National Caregiver Training Programme is a partnership between Child, Youth and Family and Fostering Kids (formerly New Zealand Family and Fostercare Federation). We work together to make sure foster children and young people are given the best of care by providing learning and development opportunities for caregivers. We offer a range of workshops, publications, and access to national qualifications.

About the programme

Our workshops are free and open to anyone in New Zealand who is caring for someone else's child, as well as caregiver social workers and Non-Government Organisation (NGO) representatives.
