The "Is fostering for me?" event is an informal session which aims to answer your initial questions about foster care -  the process and the role.  Foster families join us to have a chat about their experiences, along with other members of the team. You don't have to ask any questions - you can simply join us and hear more about fostering.

While we need more foster carers urgently for all ages of children, we particularly seek families for school age children, sibling groups and long term permanent homes for children who cannot return home.  There’s no pressure to start the process. We know foster care is very different from any other job, so we are here to help you decide if foster care is for you.

If you can't make the next session - you can always call Caroline our recruitment officer to have a chat about your circumstances and options with the different types of foster care. Please call 01670 62 62 62 or message 07779 983 165.
