CONSIDERING FOSTERING IN DERBYSHIRE?

Foster Care Fortnight

We are hosting a series of drop-in roadshows to appeal for more foster carers during national Foster Care Fortnight, from 16 - 29 May.
Foster carers and social workers will be on hand to answer questions and talk about their experiences.
Please help spread the word. If you, or anyone you know, has a spare room, tell them about our events and they could come along and find out more. No appointment is necessary. We are particularly looking for homes for older children and siblings.
  • Wednesday 18 May - 2pm - 5pm - William Gregg Leisure Centre, Heanor
  • Saturday 21 May - 10am - 12pm - Queen’s Park Sports Centre, Chesterfield
  • Saturday 21 May - 10am - 2pm - Pavilion Gardens, Buxton
  • Monday 23 May - 9am - 5pm - Rink House, Rink Drive, Swadlincote

Foster carers can offer short or long-term homes, ranging from single-night emergency stays to placements which last for years. Training and support is provided. Allowances and travelling expenses are also paid.
