Foster Carer Fortnight

Foster Carer Fortnight is a new drive to find 30 new foster carers by the City Council 


Do you know someone who might have room in their hearts - and their homes - to help care for one of the city's looked after children? If so, please encourage them to visit or tell them about the drop-in events that are taking place across the city (see below) over the next two weeks. 

The events are a great way to find out more about what being a foster carer entails. Foster carers, social workers and young people in care will be on hand to answer any questions and tell you more about their experiences.

Drop-in events

"The most challenging but exciting and rewarding adventure ever..."

These are the words of Helenor Birt who works for the council as a solicitor. Five years ago, she and her family embarked upon a new adventure, becoming a fostering family. This is her story

After you've taken a look at Helenor's powerful blog, allow Sarah Edwards - one of our brilliant and committed Children's social workers - to bust a few myths for you around foster caring. Read her blog now

Who can foster?

You need to be aged over 21, but there is no upper age limit. You can be single, married or co-habiting, straight or gay. Foster carers come from all sorts of backgrounds and all walks of life and what matters most is that you are able to help care for children in a safe and loving environment.
