Event Details

Come along to Premier Inn, Chorley North on Tuesday February 26th at 6:00pm to find out more about fostering for Alpha Plus in Lancashire. We currently have a huge need to recruit more foster carers in Lancashire and we would like the opportunity to help you find out more by providing you with all the information you might need to decide whether you could be a good foster carer.

On the day there will be a presentation with general information about fostering; we will talk about the types of fostering, the ages of children who are looking for homes and the behaviours they might present with, why children come in to foster care and how you can make a difference.

This will be followed by an opportunity for you to ask all the questions which are important to you. Deciding to become a Foster Carer is a life changing decision and we want you to have all the information you need!

You can learn more about all of these topics

Lancashire County Council is currently our biggest referring local authority, in 2018 they referred to Alpha Plus an average of 71 children per month. That is 71 vulnerable children looking for a safe place to live in Lancashire where they can live a normal stable family life. If you have a spare bedroom and the time and commitment to offer one or more of these children then please come along on Tuesday 26th February 2019 and find out more
