The session is a chance to meet and talk to carers and the Leicestershire County Council fostering team

Fostering with Leicestershire County Council

People interested in fostering can chat with carers at a special event being held at County Hall next week.

The informal session will take place on Tuesday (31 January) and will provide an opportunity for people to meet and talk to carers, as well as Leicestershire County Council's fostering team.

There are almost 700 children and young people currently in the care of Leicestershire County Council. Every year, foster carers retire or their circumstances change, so the council is always actively looking for new people to come forward.

The event takes place from 6.30 pm - 8.30pm at County Hall in Glenfield on Tuesday, January 31. Please arrive at the main reception by 6.15 pm so that you can be registered and the event can start on time.

For more information on the parking and meeting spots, watch the fostering team’s latest video on their Facebook page ‘Fostering in Leicestershire’.
