Fostering information events


We hold regular information events and drop-in sessions which can be a good introduction if you're thinking about fostering.

As part of foster care fortnight, we have staff from the fostering team at the County Hall helpdesk every weekday from 10.00am - 2.00pm on 13 - 24 May. Pop in and have a chat, ask any questions and find out more about this rewarding role.

Find out about the fostering process, meet some of our foster carers, and speak to someone from our fostering team about any questions, doubts or worries you may have. 

Upcoming sessions

Call in at any time - you don't need to book an appointment.
