Get to Know us

Come and find out more

Thinking of fostering? Got lots of questions and need some answers? This is a great way to find out about the different types of fostering and how you could make a difference to children and young people in Nottingham.

Some of our foster carers will join us at our events and share their experiences with you to help you understand what is involved in this highly rewarding role.

There's lots of opportunities to ask questions too and throughout the event we will tell you about... the process to apply to foster and what's involved in that. We'll explain the excellent level of support, training and guidance you can expect to receive as part of our team and of course not to forget the tea, coffee and biscuits to keep us going throughout the evening!

Please feel free to bring your children along too if you would like to - it's important that they feel involved if you are thinking of becoming a 'fostering family'!
