Information evenings

Our information evenings are informal and give you the chance to have a chat with social workers who are experienced in fostering.

We'll tell you a bit about becoming a foster carer and how we can support you. We'll also show some short video clips. Some of our foster carers will be there to share their experiences and answer any of your questions.

The information evenings run from 6pm to 7.30pm.

There is no need to book but please arrive promptly as the presentations start at 6pm.
