Community events

If you can't make our evening information events we host a range of informal in-person events around the county during the day. Our 'Talk to the team' events are led by our friendly fostering team and our 'Chat with our carers' events are led by our amazing foster carers. No need to book, just turn up and meet our area teams.

Our teams and foster carers look forward to meeting you, to answer any questions you may have about fostering and advise you on the process. 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.

If you'd like to know about Fostering for Lancashire, please get in touch with us via or enquiry form or call us on 0300 019 0200. You can also search #FosterForLancashire on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for updates, events and more.
