We are holding fostering information events across the weekend in a number of locations:
Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th February
Woolwich Tesco, Grand Depot Road, SE18 6HQ
Gillingham Tesco, Courtney Road, ME8 0GX
Saturday 24th Only
Harlow Tesco, East Road, CM20 2TG
The SFS teams will be available throughout the day to answer any questions you might have about Fostering or the agency itself.
This is a great opportunity for people interested in fostering to talk to our social workers and staff to find out what fostering with SFS is really like and how the recruitment process works. Our team are happy to talk to those who are new to fostering and also experienced carers who are interested in transferring. SFS offer high levels of support and training to ensure we’re there alongside you every step of the way.
We’re particularly interested in talking to people who are able to offer a home to a child over the age of 12 and to those people who have enough space to look after sibling groups so that brothers and sisters are able to live together. We as an agency are often asked to find homes for young mothers with babies, we need to help them learn how best to look after their baby and assess what else they need to be doing to meet their child’s needs.
SFS are also sometimes requested to look after children with learning difficulties or physical disabilities. People who have experience looking after children with special needs, through family or work often have particular skills to make a real difference for these children.
