Find out about fostering events

Our ‘find out about fostering’ events will tell you everything you need to know about becoming a foster carer with Leicestershire county council and let you know the differences between fostering with a local authority and an independent fostering agency.

Events are held at County Hall in Glenfield (LE3 8SA) starting at 6.30pm until around 8pm. The evenings are informal and relaxed – with plenty of tea and biscuits and a chance to hear from some of our foster carers and the team.  Afterwards, you can decide to speak to one of the team in more detail or just take some information and get back in touch with us if you need any more details.

When you arrive at County Hall, please park in the visitors' car park and come to the main reception for 6.15pm. We look forward to seeing you soon!
