Fostering Darlington, Teesside & North Yorkshire – Your local foster care office

Swiis Durham office

Welcome to the Swiis team in Darlington, Teesside & North Yorkshire.

Support groups

Our foster carers and staff attend a support group every third Wednesday of the month (excluding August and December due to holidays). The support group is a two-way process, with staff providing a welcome to new carers and then sharing information and updates. The carers have an opportunity to talk to each other, share ideas and strategies to manage challenging situations.
We offer a programme of workshops for young people aged 14+ to give them information and guidance to help to prepare for their future as independent adults. This covers topics such as budgeting, being healthy, basic first aid and food hygiene.  A certificate is awarded on completion of each workshop.
