Fostering - Find out more at an information session

Attend a fostering information event

Our information events are a great chance to find out more about fostering; offering you the opportunity to watch a short presentation on fostering with our service and to find out more about the support and training we offer, the approval process and the types of foster care schemes we run.

Our slightly less formal drop-in sessions offer the chance to speak to our friendly team and ask any questions you may have and we offer a choice of face to face or online sessions. You can join at any point during the session. 

No need to book a place, just come along to an event near you or join a Zoom meeting. Wherever you are on your fostering journey we'd love you to join us!
