Foster Care Fortnight

We will hold a number of roadshow events across Merton during Foster Care Fortnight, this will run between 11 - 24 May 2020. 

These events 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. 

Details of our roadshows will be listed shortly.

 

We hold two Fostering Information Events per month, (except in December and August). 

Come along to either our Information Evening at Pizza Express, 104 The Broadway, Wimbledon, for a slice of free pizza or a free drink at our Coffee Morning at Coco Beanz, 81 London Road, Morden to find out more about fostering with us.

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. There is no need to book.
