Join us in Meeting Room 2 at Hangleton Community Centre for the chance to informally find out what fostering involves, learn who we're looking for and how to apply.
In recognition of Refugee Week (17-23 June), the session will look at fostering Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) and explore why this specialist type of fostering can be incredily rewarding in its own unique way. Children who arrive in the UK without their parents or carers usually go into the care of their nearest public authority and will often live with approved Foster Carers when there is no suitable family member or guardian to care for them. Discover some of the reasons why our UASC Foster Carers love this type of fostering.
You will also be able to learn about Supported Lodgings Placements; our Supported Lodgings Team will be there to tell you how you can provide emotional support to a young person, helping them to learn the everyday, practical skills they need for adult life.
Our informal information events are only inspiring but also a good way to understand the role and how Brighton and Hove will support you. There will be a short, conversational group discussion beginning at 7pm, followed by a chance to chat one-to-one with our foster carers and social workers.
Tea, coffee and biscuits provided
