Fostering information event

9/22/2021 1:02:01 PM

Could you offer a Buckinghamshire child a home?

Our informal fostering information events are an opportunity to find out what's involved in becoming a foster carer. You can ask our team any questions you may have and hear first-hand accounts from our long-term foster carers and the children they have cared for.

We know that the decision to become a foster carer is not a quick decision. We will take you through all you need to know to make that decision.

 

About our events

One of our senior foster recruiters will take you through the most important facts including:

  • assessment process
  • overview of the training, support and recently updated allowance scheme we provide
  • open Q&A session led by one of our foster carers and foster care leavers they can offer real answers to any questions you might have)
  • how we can assist and support you in your application
  • a chance to network with other like-minded individuals.

It Takes A Village III: My Brother, My Sister & Me
