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.

Foster Care Fortnight™ 2018

Foster Care Fortnight™ is The Fostering Network's annual campaign to raise the profile of fostering and to show how foster care transforms lives. It is also the UK's biggest foster carer recruitment campaign. This year's campaign took place from 14 to 27 May.

Here in Lancashire we had a great couple of weeks out and about meeting people interested in fostering with us. Here's a reminder of some of our great foster carers who are #ProudtoFoster and helped us promote the #FCF18 campaign on social media. If you're interesting in finding out more about fostering with us you can do this by visiting us an event near you, completing the online application form by clicking on the green 'enquire about fostering' box on this page, or by calling us on 0330 123 6723.
