Posted on:

Dudley Council’s fostering team continues their online search for new foster carers.

The team will be hosting their second virtual information session for prospective foster carers at 6pm on Tuesday February 16, with a further session scheduled on March 11. 

The hour-long information sessions are an opportunity for people to learn more about what fostering involves as well as busting some common myths.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about the role of a foster carer, the children needing care and the skills and qualities needed to be a foster carer. It will also be a chance to meet some of the team and ask any questions.

The sessions will be hosted via Microsoft Teams and can be booked via

Councillor Ruth Buttery, cabinet member for children and young people, said:

No matter where you are on your fostering journey our drop-in sessions are also an easy way for people to find out more in an informal, friendly environment without making any commitment.
We’re proud of our foster carers and are always happy to hear from anyone who feels they can offer a safe, caring and stable home to children looked after by Dudley borough.

Dudley fostering offers a rewarding career, with a range of fostering options, 24-hour support 365 days a year and comprehensive training and guidance.
