Faith literacy training

Home for Good provides training for social workers to enable them to better understand faith issues that are important to explore during the assessment process.

A rigorous assessment process for potential foster carers and adoptive parents is essential. Faith literacy training equips social workers to better understand faith, to ensure that the right questions are asked to discover the impact that faith will have on the applicants as foster carers or adoptive parents.

A training programme will be prepared to suit your specific requirements. The following is an illustrative programme:

Part 1: Understanding churches and faith groups

  • Making sense of terminology, church governance and roles and responsibilities
  • Positive and protective factors within churches and faith communities

Part 2: Training and assessment

  • Key issues for assessing social workers to consider
  • Values and beliefs vs prioritising children’s needs
  • Overcoming hurdles
