New foster carers are sought in Dudley
Dudley Council’s fostering team continues to search for new foster carers.
As part of their ongoing campaign, the team is looking for new foster carers who can help children and young people achieve their full potential.
The role of a foster carer may not be an easy one but the difference they make is profound.
As part of the campaign the recruitment team is encouraging people who are interested to visit their website www.fosteringindudley.org.uk and watch their video ‘truth be told’.
The video is based on the true accounts of Dudley foster carers and their heartfelt experiences of fostering teenagers and sibling groups.
The team holds regular drop-in sessions which are a great opportunity for people to find out more by speaking informally to a member of the fostering team and also some of Dudley’s existing carers, dates for these can be found at www.fosteringindudley.org.uk
Councillor Ruth Buttery, cabinet member for children and young people, said:
I would really encourage anyone interested in fostering to visit www.fosteringindudley.org.uk to find out more and watch our ‘truth be told’ video which shows the truly positive effect carers have on the lives of children and young people in their care.
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.
The service is keen to hear from anyone interested in fostering but in particular from those who would like to care for teenagers, children with disabilities or those who could take more than one child so brothers and sisters can stay together.
Dudley fostering offers a rewarding career, with a range of fostering options, 24 hour support 365 days a year and comprehensive training and guidance.
