Could you foster a child?

If you have ever considered the possibility of fostering a child, then we would strongly encourage you to attend the fostering information meeting on Saturday 24 June.

Raynes Park Library, Approach Road, SW20, will play host to the event, which aims to enlighten potential foster parents about how fulfilling experience it can be to offer a child a new home where you can offer them love, support and most importantly, a new direction in their formative years.

Full press release available.
