People interested in finding out more about fostering will be treated to a performance from the Children in Care Choir when they attend a special information event on Tuesday, April 4.
The informal session will start at 6.30pm at Glenfield-based County Hall, but attendees are encouraged to arrive at around 6pm to catch the performance by the Beacon Voices.
The information event will provide an opportunity for people to meet and talk to carers, as well as Leicestershire County Council's fostering team.
This information event offers a chance to have a relaxed chat with our team and get answers to questions about becoming a foster carer in Leicestershire. It will also help support your decision by providing the information you need.
“This time, there will be the added treat of hearing the amazing Beacon Voices Choir perform. This is something our children in care can be a part of that nurtures their love of singing.
“Not only that, but it boosts and develops vital skills such as decision-making, paying attention and listening. It also builds teamwork and our young people's confidence and self-esteem, all while singing on a stage in front of an audience. We know they are looking forward to singing a small selection of songs on the night.
Person:Councillor Deborah Taylor, lead member for children and families
At the event participants can talk through the facts of fostering, hear from some of the council's foster carers first-hand and, with the support of the team, see if fostering is the right path for them, now or later.
