Find out about foster care – Leyland Festival, June 17

5 June 2017 | CFC News

Anyone considering becoming a foster carer might want to seek out the Community Foster Care team at the Leyland Festival on Saturday June 17.

“We hope that anyone considering fostering will come along,” said Maria Nyklewicz-Betney, senior practitioner with CFC, based in Quarry Road, Lancaster.

There are more than 1,300 children in Lancashire in need of foster carers who can offer stability and security, and the number is rising.

Foster carers come from all walks of life and can be single, married or divorced, male or female. They must be aged 25-70.

Community Foster Care is a not-for-profit, independent agency. “If you want to join an agency that feels like a large family with a high level of support, that is what we are about,” said Maria.
