Virtual drop-in session for would-be foster carers

Posted on:

People interested in fostering are being encouraged to take the first step towards transforming a child’s life by attending an online drop-in session as part of national Foster Care Fortnight.

The information session takes place on May 11 from 12 noon to 1pm and people can register to book their place for free at

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

Foster Care Fortnight runs from May 9 to May 22.

Catherine Driscoll, director for children’s services, said:

“This session will give people interested in fostering a chance to find out more and have their questions answered in a relaxed and informal environment.
No one has to make a commitment when they attend the session, we’d just really like to hear from people who think they can offer a home to children looked after by Dudley borough.
For those who can’t make it, our website is a great place to find out more.

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.

They would also like to hear from people interested in long-term fostering.
