The St Andrew’s Children’s Society is holding an online Find out about fostering 1-2-1 event as part of Foster Care Fortnight™, which is an annual campaign run by The Fostering Network to raise awareness about fostering.

The event will be slightly different from previous fostering information events the organisation has held, as this time participants will be able to choose a 30-minute online slot at a time that suits them to talk to the society about fostering.

It’s important to find out if fostering is right for you and that’s why the adoption body want to give you the opportunity to ask as many questions as you would like to help you make your decision.

A spokesperson said: “We will be joined as well by one of our foster carers who will share their experiences of fostering with you and answer any questions you might have. We would also be very happy to talk you through the fostering process, if that would be helpful for you at this stage of your fostering journey. Your privacy will be respected at all times.

“We have an urgent need for permanent foster carers and would ask anyone who thinks they could foster a vulnerable child on a permanent basis to please book a slot.”
