Could you change a life by fostering a child or young person?
Join us at our next information drop-in session, which is being held on Wednesday December 4 at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield.
Fostering is incredibly rewarding and you can talk to some of our foster carers to hear their first-hand experiences, as well as chatting informally to the team. We can answer all your questions and offer advice on how to get involved.
Fostering in Kirklees
We always need people to care for our looked after children in Kirklees so that they can stay in the area and remain close to their friends, family and school. We’re seeking carers for children of all ages, as well as those with disabilities and additional learning needs.
Mel Meggs, the council’s Director of Children’s Services, said:
“Children deserve a home which makes them feel safe, stable, valued and loved. Children in care have often faced difficult experiences, so our foster carers provide truly life-enhancing opportunities.
Carers come from all backgrounds and we make sure they are helped by high-quality training and support. The event will tell you everything you need to know and is a brilliant chance to meet some of our wonderful real-life carers.”
To find out more, come along to the main building of the John Smith’s Stadium at any time from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. Children are welcome, there’s free parking and refreshments are available.
