Event Details

Have you been thinking about fostering but want to know more?

Alpha Plus Fostering will be attending the Mum 2 Mum Market at Oasis Academy, Oldham on 20th May 2018 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.

Come along and have an informal chat with our Carer Engagement Officer, Nicky. She will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about fostering. You can take away fostering information from the event and/or arrange for Alpha Plus Fostering to visit you at home to discuss fostering in more detail.

We are looking for Foster Carers who have the ability to care for sibling groups and children over the age of ten in particular. Children come into care for a variety of reasons but often this is due to neglect and abuse and they therefore need resilient foster carers who are able to help them to cope with the range of difficult emotions they have due to suffering from trauma.

Have you have experience of working with children or caring for your own children?

Do you have space and a spare bedroom which could be used solely by a Foster Child?

Do you have lot of love and patience to offer?

If you can answer yes to these questions then we want to hear from you!

You do not need to have an income already or lots of money in the bank as we pay a generous allowance of at least £400 per week to help you looks after these children and give them the best possible care.

We do not care about your race, religion beliefs, relationship status or sexuality or whether your house is rented or owned. Children looking for a foster home come from diverse backgrounds and therefore we need a range of foster carers to look after them and offer them opportunities that they otherwise would not have. Do not rule yourself out, too many people believe they cannot foster when in fact they can. Come along and have a chat,

They are nearly new baby and children’s markets where Mums sell to Mums, so you can make a day of it and pick up some treats for your children or grandchildren or you can attend just to have a chat with Nicky! We look forward to seeing you there either way.
