Fostering - Find out more at an information session

Attend a fostering information event

Our information events are a great chance to find out more about fostering; offering you the opportunity to watch a short presentation on fostering with our service and to find out more about the support and training we offer, the approval process and the types of foster care schemes we run. You will also hear from some of our foster carers in your area and have the opportunity to speak to our carers and our friendly team after the presentation, to ask any questions you may have. No need to book a place, just come along and take your first step on your fostering journey: 

  • Penrith information event  - Saturday 29 January -  Regency Conference room, George Hotel, Devonshire Street, Penrith CA11 7SU - from 10am till 12pm 


Our face to face fostering events are making a return! 

Find out more about fostering and chat to our friendly team and carers at an upcoming drop in event in your area.

If you have been thinking about fostering and have a spare room a child could call their own and are great with children and young people, we'd love to speak to you.
