Tickton Grange Hotel, Tickton, near Beverley. 6pm – 8pm.
If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a foster family, what is involved, the rewards, benefits and challenges now is the time!
Experts from East Riding Fostering including social workers, foster carers and looked after children, will be at our ‘Find out about Fostering’ event this week. You don’t have to sign up on the spot, it is a chance to find out everything you need to know, including speaking to those who are already fostering children and to gain first-hand insights into the role. You can ask any questions you may have regarding allowances and fees, what is expected of you and so on.
Some of our carers foster babies, children and young people on a long term basis, while others provide short term, emergency and respite care. Many of our carers love nurturing newborn babies and toddlers, either working with the child and their birth family to facilitate an eventual reunion, or preparing the child for adoption and life with a new family. Others love the challenges and rewards of caring for older children, giving them the support and nurture they need – such as support with homework, help developing positive friendships, building confidence and encouraging them to follow their dreams and ambitions.
You don’t need formal qualifications and you don’t have to own your own home or have children of your own. All we ask is that you have a spare room and the commitment to meet the needs of a child who needs you the most.
What’s stopping you? come and have a chat with us on Thursday 12 July, 6-8pm at Tickton Grange Hotel, near Beverley, HU17 9SH.
