Ever thought about fostering? Blackburn with Darwen Council’s fostering team is holding a a drop-in fostering information evening on May 29, 6pm-8pm, at Shadsworth Children’s Centre, Shadsworth Road, Blackburn, when there will be the opportunity to speak to social workers and existing foster carers.
There are many different types of fostering, from short-term placements and short breaks for families with children with disabilities to providing a long-term or even permanent home.
Fostering is a rewarding, paid and professional role that comes with extensive training and on-going support. Foster carers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and can be considered regardless of gender, age, marital or job status.
