Councillor Ruth Buttery, cabinet member elect for children’s services, said:
Fostering in Dudley offers a rewarding career and gives people the chance to make a huge difference to children’s lives.
Our foster carers are given 24-hour support and ongoing training and guidance throughout the year. I would encourage people who are considering fostering to attend our information sessions to find out more.
