Virtual Fostering Information Evening

Virtual Fostering Information Evening

We are holding a Virtual Fostering Information Evening on Wednesday, 19 May from 6.30pm to 8pm as part of Foster Care Fortnight™ 2021.

There are far too many vulnerable children in Scotland waiting to find a safe and loving home. With your help we can change that. Doesn’t every child deserve to grow up feeling safe and loved?

This is an informal Virtual Fostering Information Evening where you can find out more about the fostering process, who the children are in need of foster care families and what support we can offer you. You can ask any questions you like at the event either directly or via the Zoom Chat facility.

Want to speak to us before the event first to see if fostering is right for you?

No problem. We would be very happy to speak to you over the phone or Zoom before the event (we would love to meet you face to face but for the time being, we’re having to rely on virtual meetings). You can ask as many questions as you like to help you decide if fostering is right for you.

Who should take part?

We welcome enquiries to foster from all members of the community including single people and people from the LGBTQ+ community.
