Please can anybody help, I'm TRYING to fill in the CWDC standards and I feel like I'm going round and round in circles, I don't know if I'm on the right wave length, and I'm almost thinking of throwing it all in as these are really stressing me out.
Looking after the children is easy compared to this, I'm getting no advice from SW and I only have 5 weeks to finish them, is there anyone out there that can give me any help/advice PLEASE.

Try this " What the standards say about ....FOSTERING" by Meral Mehmet . Could get it on Amazon may still be on or may be able to get one 2nd hand. It is brilliant will take you through it all our LA gave us all a copy when we did ours. publisher's Russell house publishing.
Good hunting.

Oh to have a fairy that would fill these books in! Sounds like everyone thinks they are a nightmare. When I went into fostering it was because I wanted to help children that needed help. NOT do all this paperwork that to be honest seems a waste of time. I'm going round and round in circles getting nowhere very fast :-(

TBH I don't think they are even read. I asked to borrow a friends book to ensure I was on the right track with them smile feel free to ask for help, more than happy to dig mine out smile

Flothy, I don't think they are either. When I had to do mine - when they were first brought in - there was such a rush for the LA to get them through that we all did them in big groups, therefore almost all of them were identical.
