Lancashire County Council's fostering team is running unique drop-in surgeries for people interested in fostering offering:
We run drop-in events in community venues across Lancashire throughout the year. We've starting trialling fostering events in Costa Coffee branches, so if you're popping in for a coffee, come and say hello to our team. If there isn't an event planned near you at the moment, please keep checking this page which will be updated when new events are confirmed.
In previous recruitment campaigns our foster carers have helped us to recruit more foster carers by talking about why they are #ProudtoFoster with us. Two of our carers Ahmed and Beth also took part in radio adverts and a behind-the-scenes video, which you can watch on our fostering stories page. If you follow us on Pinterest you can also see some of our amazing foster carers on our fostering board.
