LGBTQ+ Adoption & Fostering Week returns this year from 4 March. This campaign speaks solely to the LGBTQ+ community and aims to encourage more LGBTQ+ people to consider fostering.
If you’ve ever wondered if fostering could be for you, come along to our free Friday night information evening.
Gain an understanding of what it means to be a foster carer, chat to our friendly team and meet experienced foster carers.
Here’s a rundown of what to expect:
7 pm – arrival and refreshments
7.15 pm – welcome and introduction. Our team will briefly cover what fostering entails, why children come into care, the fostering assessment, and the role/responsibilities. There will also be a discussion on supported lodgings, which is for young people 16-21
7.30 pm- foster carers will speak to you about their experience of the fostering assessment, their role and the support they have received.
8pm – opportunity to ask questions
8.30pm- mingle and enjoy the refreshments

We look forward to seeing you there 😊
