Kind-hearted individuals are being asked to step forward and become foster parents for vulnerable children and young people in Leicestershire.

Leicestershire County Council is running two events next month to try and encourage people to open up their homes to children in need. 

The informal evenings, set to be held from 6.15pm to 8pm on Wednesday, 4 October, and Wednesday, 25 October, at County Hall in Glenfield, will provide prospective foster parents with an opportunity to meet and talk to carers, as well as the council's fostering team.


Before embarking on the fostering journey, many prospective fosterers will no doubt have a number of questions.

"So, at the event, our fostering team will be on hand to explain why fostering is a hugely rewarding role, as well as offer the support and information needed, no matter how far along people are in their journey.
