According to the Fostering Network, the UK’s leading fostering charity, 900 foster families are needed across Yorkshire.
Deciding to foster a child is a momentous decision. It will not only change the life of the child you look after but transforms you and your family too.
If you have been thinking about fostering or just want to know more, you can attend a coffee morning at The Bike Cave, 41 Middle Street North, Driffield, on 29 October from 10am-12pm.
You’ll be able to find out more about fostering and the application process and talk more about the opportunities and benefits open to people who choose to foster.
Orange Grove Fostercare Registered Manager, Craig Clark, commented:
“We’re looking for people who have the capacity and the desire to make a difference for children.
“People can be quick to rule themselves out of fostering. We understand there are a lot of misconceptions around becoming a foster parent, but the truth of the matter is that to foster, the main requirement is that you want to help make a difference to a child’s life and can provide a loving and stable home.
“Experience of working with children or young people can be beneficial but not always necessary, as full training and support will be provided.
“We hope that people will come along with an open mind, find out more information and go away with a more informed view of what fostering involves.”
Orange Grove Fostercare is an independent fostering agency that currently take care of around 400 children across Yorkshire, the North West, Midlands and South East.
