Anyone considering becoming a foster carer might want to take the family to Barton Grange Garden Centre in Garstang Road, Brock on Sunday August 17.
Staff from the charity Community Foster Care will be there from 11am-3pm to answer questions about fostering, as well as providing arts and crafts and facepainting sessions for children.
“It’s an opportunity for anyone interested in fostering to have an informal chat whilst the children are entertained,” said Emma Weaver, Registered Manager of CFC, based at Nateby.
There are more than 1,300 children in Lancashire in need of foster carers, 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 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 Emma.
