Speak to one of Gloucestershire County Council's fostering team and an experienced carer to find out how you can kick start your fostering journey, this March 2023.

Find out how you can make a positive impact to the life of a child in Gloucestershire by providing them with a safe and loving home, at Gloucestershire County Council’s latest in-person information session, this March 2023.

Taking place at Chipping Campden Market on Saturday 11 March 2023 from 10am to 5pm, people who are interested in finding out more about fostering a child can speak to an experienced foster carer and one of the council's team about how the rewarding process can work.

Around 870 children of all ages are currently in care in Gloucestershire - and finding local foster carers is essential in ensuring these youngsters can stay at the schools of their choice and close to friends and family.

The March session will explain the various types of foster care, process of becoming a foster carer, eligibility criteria, personal stories of fostering, as well as the support available and the foster care pay.

Whether you are single or in a relationship; rent or own your home; in employment or otherwise; fostering is open to anyone over 21 regardless of race, religion or sexuality.

So, if you are considering fostering in the future – or thinking of applying soon – this session is for you.
