Find out more about fostering at our information events

 

Foster Care Fortnight roadshows

We are holding roadshow events across Merton during Foster Care Fortnight, 13-26 May 2019. These are an informal way to find out more about fostering, the application process and the support we provide. A foster carer will also be at every roadshow to talk about their experiences of fostering and answer questions.

 

We hold two fostering information events each month at Morden Baptist Church, Crown Lane, SM4 5BL.

You don't need to book a place and there is free parking at the church for anyone attending the events.

We will talk about what fostering is, how the assessment process works, the types of support, training, and payments you'll receive, as well as how fostering could affect your family life and much more.
