Mockingbird Family Model (a new way of providing foster care)

How to join

Ask your fostering social worker about joining a Mockingbird group.

They can tell you more about how it works, and what it means for you and the children in your care.

  • You must be committed to taking part in the hub community
  • You must be an Approved Foster Carer who is committed to career development with South Tyneside

Foster carers in the group will have a range of skills levels at Level 2, 3 or 4 of the 'Payment for Skills' Model and 'Tasks, Skills and Competencies' Framework
