Fostering information sessions

Fostering information sessions

Due to the current pandemic and the need to social distance, we are running online information sessions to highlight the need for more foster families in South Gloucestershire, and provide useuful information to anyone who may be interested in fostering themselves.

Our informal fostering sessions cover:

  • The different types of fostering
  • Basic requirements of our foster carers

There will also be an opportunity for those watching to type in and submit questions in real time to be answered by the presenter on screen.
