To find out more you can give us a call on 0300 123 6723 or complete our enquiry form and one of the team will contact you.
You can also come along to one of our information evenings or community events to find out more in person. New for October we are also running fostering surgeries:
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.

Our foster carers have been helping us to recruit more foster carers by talking on social media 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.
