On Monday evening, 9th October, we held our latest recruitment event at Hallmark Hotel, Mickleover Court, for anyone interested in taking their first steps into fostering or adoption.

The event was an opportunity for local people interested in fostering or adoption to speak to our team and hear from our current carers about the rewards and the challenges.

Councillor Sara Bolton, Cabinet Member for Children & Young People and Safeguarding says,

“I hope that many of those who came along to the event on Monday will ultimately join us in fostering or adopting a child or children in care.  It is such a rewarding and fulfilling role which makes a huge difference to some of our most vulnerable young people in the city.”

The fostering and adoption teams will now follow-up with those who attended the event, encouraging them all to participate in the assessment process.
