While school will be starting again for many children in Gloucestershire this September, over 860 youngsters of all ages are currently in care and in urgent need of local foster carers who can bring much-needed stability to their lives.
If you are over 21 years of age and think you might have what it takes to foster a child from the area, Gloucestershire County Council is holding an informal online event on Wednesday 7 September 2022, where potential foster carers can find out more.
Hear from an experienced foster carer and social worker, who can provide real insight into the different types of fostering available, the support on offer and the process involved in becoming a foster carer, while also sharing personal stories and answering any questions.
Local foster carers are essential in allowing children to stay at their schools, as well as in the same area as friends and members of their family.
Plus, you can foster whether you’re single or in a relationship; in employment – or not; rent or own your home.
