Gloucestershire County Council will hold a fostering drop in event on Friday, 24 November at the Gloucester Quays Victorian Market from 10am to 4pm.

You are invited to come along to the stand, located inside the Quays next to Chapelle. Our team of experienced foster carers will be there answering questions about fostering. There will also be information on types of fostering, allowances and the assessment process.

The county council accepts applications to foster from all sectors of society. There is no upper age limit to foster and people can be married, single, co-habiting, in a heterosexual or same sex relationship, a homeowner or renting a property.

All children are different, and to meet their needs, the county council is looking for a wide variety of people. Applicants will need to be over 21 and have a spare room (or spare rooms for siblings) in their home.

The county council is particularly keen to hear from people looking to foster older children, siblings and teenagers.

For further information about fostering with the county council call 01242 532654 or visit www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/fostering.
