How to find out more

Fostering Information Sessions

If you've ever thought about fostering, come and join us for an informal chat at one of our information evenings.

In the sessions, our fostering social workers will explain all about the application process, support and training that you will receive and what life is like as a foster carer. 

You will also have the opportunity to meet one of our current foster carers who will share their experiences and be happy to answer any questions.

The sessions take place monthly at 25-27 Marketplace, South Shields, NE33 1JF.
