Change a child’s life and become a foster carer

Trust Fostering is holding a live information session giving people in Doncaster Borough the opportunity to find out how they can become foster carers.

The team, which is part of Doncaster Children’s Service Trust, will be online to answer your questions about the fostering process as well as the support offered by the team and the Trust. You will also get a chance to talk to our Trust Fostering carers who will be on hand to share their experiences.

The online event will take place using Microsoft Teams on Wednesday, 17 June, from 7pm to 8pm.

There are many benefits of fostering through Trust Fostering. You will be part of an extensive experienced fostering community who are always on hand to offer advice and 24/7 support and comprehensive training.

Katie Fisher, Team Manager for Trust Fostering, said: “We know that everything’s a little strange right now, but we are still here working hard to find loving foster families and carers for Doncaster children.

“If you’ve been thinking about fostering then these events are a great way to find out more and speak to our amazing foster carers from the comfort of your own home.

“Our foster carers come from all backgrounds. We have single carers, same-sex couples, people with disabilities, all ethnic backgrounds and ages. The one thing all our carers have in common is they are great listeners and have endless care and love to support our children and young people.

“If this sounds like you, and you have at least one spare bedroom, we would love to hear from you.”

To book your place or for more information contact the fostering team by calling 0808 129 2600 or completing an enquiry form on their website www.trustfostering.co.uk. Once we've received your request you will be sent a link to the join the information event.
