The events will take place on:

You don't need to book. Refreshments will be provided.

Fostering information evenings

We have information evenings on fostering every six weeks, in central Bristol. At these sessions, you’ll learn about:

  • the children who need fostering in Bristol
  • the process of becoming a foster carer
  • the skills and qualities you need to become a carer
  • the rewards and realities of fostering from a foster carer

At the end of the evening, you can talk to one of the foster carers who will be there. You can also talk to us.
