Foster carers needed

Merton Council’s fostering service is holding an information morning at Wimbledon Library on Saturday 13 March, between 10am and 1pm, where social workers will be on hand to answer any questions & handing out leaflets.

Merton looks after over 150 children of all ages and backgrounds. To meet the diverse needs of these children, Merton urgently needs to recruit 17 more foster carers from all walks of life, for short and long-term placements.

There is a particularly need for carers who can look after sibling groups, older children aged 11-18 years, carers from African and Asian communities, as well as those of mixed parentage. Full training is given to all successful applicants and generous allowances are paid. You can call us free on 0800 073 0874 for an information pack or attend one of the information mornings.
