Have you ever thought of becoming a foster carer? Join the WCF fostering team online sessions to find out more.

The Coronavirus pandemic has changed much for many people, but one thing that hasn’t changed in Worcestershire, is the need for foster carers.

Worcestershire Children First Fostering (WCFF) are still looking for new foster carers.

If you have room in your heart as well as your home, and would like more information on becoming a foster carer; there are two upcoming online information drop-in sessions this May hosted by the WCFF recruitment team.

The first session is being hosted online via Zoom on Tuesday 12th May from 3:00pm, with the second taking place a week later on Tuesday 19th May from 6pm.

On the call, there are also opportunities to speak to current foster carers, who can speak first hand about their experiences.

Councillor Andy Roberts, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Children and Families said: “We know that making the decision to foster is a huge step. Worcestershire Children First Fostering aims to guide you and support you as you make one of the biggest, yet most rewarding decisions anyone can make.

We’re so grateful for all that our current foster carers continue to offer to children in Worcestershire, and the fantastic memories that continue to be made.

We’re always looking to expand our network of foster carers. If fostering is something you have always thought about but never taken the first step, our online sessions are the perfect place to start.”

For more information on joining the meetings online, please contact: Susan Fletcher, Fostering Recruitment Manager by email SFletcher7@worcschildrenfirst.org.uk or call direct on 01905 844129.
