Could you foster a vulnerable child?

First published in East Yorkshire news

FOSTER carers are needed, particularly for older children and teenagers, in East Yorkshire.

A recruitment drive has been launched by East Riding of Yorkshire Council which is holding a ‘Find Out About Fostering’ event at Tickton Grange Hotel, Tickton, near Beverley, on Monday, September 8, from 5.45pm.

People will be able to talk to fostering social workers and discuss suitability; meet foster carers and their birth children; talk to looked-after young people and hear about their experiences; and find out about free professional training.

Dave Glenville, the council’s fostering team leader, said that they are particularly interested in hearing from people interested in fostering children aged from eight to 16.

“Foster carers must be able to offer the time, commitment, space and skills to care for children separated from their own families.”

Anyone interested in finding out more about becoming a foster carer, or to book a place at the event, can contact the fostering team on 01482 396673.
