Attend an information session

Information Evenings                         

If you are interested in Fostering the best place to start is an information meeting. Unfortunately at the moment due to current health concerns associated with COVID-19, we will not be able to proceed with our face to face information meetings. However this does not mean that your fostering journey can't start right now.

Next Steps

You now have 2 options you can either watch our pre-recorded information meeting or you can join us for our LIVE information meeting delivered by one of our social workers and supported by 1 of our foster carers. You can do both if you want to.

Option 1: - Enquire online and we will send you out our fostering information meeting presentation via email for you to watch at home.

Option 2: - Book via Eventbrite for one of our LIVE information meetings on teams - click on one of the dates below and register to attend and we will send you a link.  

Thursday 2 July 2020, 6.30pm

Thursday 16 July, 6.30pm

Once you have viewed the presentation if you wish to proceed, please get in touch with us by emailing fosteringandadoptionbus@staffordshire.gov.uk and we will arrange for one of our social workers to get in touch with you to arrange a virtual initial visit.

If you then wish to continue with an assessment, we will ask you to complete a fostering detailed information form.

Facebook Live

We are also holding Facebook LIVE sessions starting at 10am every other Friday during the lockdown. You can join us and get all your questions answered.

Please be aware that if you would like to foster for Staffordshire County Council you need to have a spare room (even if you want to foster babies) and if you want to foster as a couple you need to have been in a stable relationship for at least 2 years.
