The Phase Two Report 2016-17 was presented to Welsh Government at the end of March 2017 and a work programme for Phase Three 2017-18 has been agreed.

Funding for this work is coming from the £8million investment in Children’s Services recently announced by WG, £400k has been identified for the NFF Phase Three work programme. At the end of September the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) agreed that £400k will be ring fenced for the NFF in next financial year 2018-19.  This is recognition of the work achieved so far and ensures the work for 2018-19 will continue.

The next annual National Fostering Framework Conference will be held on 15th March 2018 at the Metropole Hotel, LlandindodWells. Please put the date in your dairies, a flyer and booking form will be coming out in the New Year.
