Event description
Join us for an evening and find out all about what's involved in becoming a foster carer for the City of Wolverhampton Council

About this Event

Interested in becoming a foster carer, then come along to meet the Fostering for Wolverhampton team at the Molineux Stadium, International Suite on Thursday 21 November from 6.30pm until 8pm. It's an opportunity to find out more about this rewarding career including the support and financial benefits and speak directly to some of our current foster carers. Refreshments will be served.

Foster families are helping to give hundreds of children in Wolverhampton the best possible start in life by offering them a supportive environment in a loving home. But more foster carers are urgently needed as there are currently dozens of children waiting for a home, and the Fostering for Wolverhampton team are keen to hear from individuals and couples who want to make a difference to a local child.

Foster carers can be single, married or in a relationship – and they won't be on their own as help and support is available 24 hours a day. They will receive six months' “buddy support” from experienced foster carers who are there to help and guide them and carers receive a regular, tax exempt fee and allowance to cover the cost of bringing up the child. The allowance starts from £383 to £440 per week depending on the child’s age.
