GMB - THE UNION FOR FOSTER CARERS
Foster carers need a trade union more than most people because of the nature of their work. They open up their homes to care for vulnerable children but don’t have access to the same basic employment rights and protection that a lot of us take for granted.
For several years GMB has been representing foster carers in Leeds and recently we have expanded out into other parts of the region, including Kirklees, Calderdale and Bradford.
Our foster carer membership are able to access independent legal advice and representation at investigations, reviews and panel hearings, criminal representation on any allegations and also access to a wide range of fully funded learning and educational opportunities.
