Within the frameworks of the project "National Foster Care Resource Center" the Social Activities and Practices Institute carries out training in foster care in Bourgas, Varna and Dupnica. In the training were included not only professionals from these cities, but also from neighboring municipalities.
The aim of the training is to prepare the providers of social services in the Bourgas, Varna and Kiustendil regions to train by themselves candidates for foster parents. This first step would in practice allow the starting of the development and professionalization of foster care , and the interest in this type of care has increased substantially, not only among the professionals, but also among the community. The quality of the training provided by the National Foster Care Resource Center for trainers in foster care is a key factor for the quality of preparation and training of new foster families. In this way we guarantee good care for the children placed in foster care.
In spite of the summer heat and their other tasks and duties the social workers and the psychologists participate with enthusiasm and strong professional motivation in the discussions that are part of the interactive methods of training of the experts from the Social Activities and Practices Institute.
