Online fostering information sessions

Every week until December 2020
Time: 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
2 young children.
Venue: Join the virtual session from home
Price: FREE
Suitable for: Adults
Event organised by: Rochdale Borough Council

The best way to find out about fostering and decide whether it's right for you is to come and meet the team. It doesn't matter if you're ready to apply or if you just want to find out a bit more.

As we can't meet in our usual public venues we're meeting online using Zoom secure video call. You will get a short presentation from our friendly fostering team, who will be happy to answer any questions, and you can speak to foster carers about the challenges and rewards of all aspects of fostering.

There will then be an opportunity to go into a private virtual room with a member of our team if you wish to discuss your specific circumstances or ask any private questions.
