Fostering information events

crowd of people standing and talking

Our online and face to face information events are an informal opportunity to learn more about fostering and how to become a foster carer. You can hear first-hand from people who foster and learn about some of the children who need homes, all from the comfort of your living room. Social workers and foster carers will be on hand to chat and answer your questions, and we'll tell you more about the process of becoming a foster carer.

Our information events cover different areas of fostering, from supported lodgings to fostering a child with disabilities. If you're thinking about fostering, come along to an event to learn more.

Events are held on both Zoom and face to face. If you have any questions about our events, please call us on 0800 801 530 or send us an email at fosteringrecruitment@essex.gov.uk.
