Talk Fostering Recruitment Event – Monday 17 September 2018 – 5.00pm to 7.00pm

Talk Fostering at Belper School and Sixth Form Centre

There is a real need for new foster carers in Derbyshire and we’re very pleased to be able to help by hosting one of a series of Derbyshire County Council’s Talk Fostering recruitment events . Current foster carers and the council’s fostering recruitment team will be on hand  between 5-7pm on Monday 17 September 2018 to talk about the benefits of fostering, as well as the process of becoming an approved foster carer and the support carers and children are entitled to.

Anyone aged over 21 can foster. You can be a home owner or live in rented accommodation, working or not. You can be married, living with a partner, in a same-sex relationship or single,  already have children or not.

If you’d like to know more about fostering ahead of the event, please go online at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/fostering

If you aren’t able to attend the event in school but are interested in fostering, the website also has details of other upcoming Talk Fostering events in county.
