Drop-in sessions about fostering are being held at the Costa Coffee shop in Waterstone’s, Scotch Street, Carlisle on July 7, 14 and 21.
Experts from Community Foster Care, based in Peart Road, Workington, will be on hand to answer questions about fostering from 10am until 1pm.
“Please come and talk to us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions,” said Emma Weaver, Registered Manager with Community Foster Care, an independent, not-for-profit agency.
“Becoming a foster carer is rewarding and life-changing. 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.
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 provides foster carers for children all over Cumbria.
