Foster care info session: Dunmail Park, Workington, March 29

17 March 2017 | CFC News

Community Foster Care is holding an information session about fostering at Dunmail Park shopping centre in Workington on Wednesday March 29 from 11am - 2.30pm.

Anyone interested in fostering is welcome to chat to experts from the independent agency, based in Peart Road, Workington.

“Becoming a foster carer is rewarding and life-changing,” said Emma Weaver, Registered Manager with Community Foster Care.

“Many people think they can’t foster, but the opposite is often true. There’s lots of help and training to get you started and constant support along the way.”

There are more than 600 children in care in Cumbria.  “Children are in care through no fault of their own. All they want is a safe place to call home and people who will try to understand them,” said Emma.

“Please come and talk to us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.”

Foster carers come from all walks of life and can be male or female, single, married or divorced. They must be over 25 and in generally good health. Community Foster Care is a not-for-profit agency which provides foster carers for children all over Cumbria.
