Event to recruit foster carers

Have your say

A CAMPAIGN highlighting the need for more foster carers will be given a boost at an information evening being held today.

Team Fostering, which provides care for children and young people across Yorkshire, has organised the event at its offices at Unit A, Arena Links, Broughton Lane, in Sheffield, from 6pm till 8pm.

The event takes place during Foster Care Fortnight and organisers hope it will attract anyone who has considered fostering but has been unsure how to go about it or what it entails.

Visitors will be welcomed by existing foster carers and social workers from Team Fostering and there will be a brief presentation about Team Fostering and the support and services it offers.

The agency has 11 years of experience in the field and is a not-for-profit organisation.
