Fostering - Support groups

As part of the Cumbria fostering family you'll be one of over 200 households that foster with Cumbria County Council.

There are three regional fostering support groups that meet regularly across the county. The groups give you a chance to share your experiences as well as get hints and tips from other carers who've been through it before.

Our support groups produce their own newsletter which will keep you up to date with developments in the world of fostering.

If you'd like to attend a support group meeting as you're going through the application process let us know and we can arrange this.
