Therapeutic Fostering Conference – Mulberry Bush & Orb 8

We were very excited to be invited to present at the Mulberry Bush and Orb 8 conference to be held in June. Due to the ongoing social distancing the decision was made to hold the conference, in a shortened version, online on the 3rd June. Please see below further information and sign up information.

The revised full conference will hopefully take place later this year, where Mosaic will share how we have developed our therapeutic model, over the last 10 years, and how our Outstanding agency is developing our model further.
