Head, Heart, Hands

Head, Heart, Hands is an exciting four year programme led by the Fostering Network, which aims to demonstrate the impact that introducing social pedagogy can make to foster carers and the lives of the children they foster. By doing so, the programme aims to improve outcomes for children in care and contribute to them being able to fulfil their potential. The long term aim is to embed a social pedagogic approach within foster care across the UK.

For more information about Head, Heart, Hands, you can download the leaflet introducing the programme, email hhhinfo@fostering.net, or call 020 7620 6409.
