Our coffee mornings are a great opportunity to meet the team and chat to our carers. We believe that when it comes to fostering there is no question that you shouldn't feel able to ask and we encourage all visitors to our events to do just that.
We've got a couple of events lined up over the next few weeks:
Information Event "Let's set the record straight" busting the myths around fostering - 14th November - 11.30 until 2.30 at the Huntingdon Marriot, Cambridgeshire.
Coffee morning - a chance to meet the team and our carers over a cup of coffee and slice of cake. 10.30 - 12.30 24th November at our offices in East Bergholt, Suffolk.
So why not drop in and chat to our carers who are always open about the reality of fostering, its rewards and its challenges.
The day, when it arrives is cold and wet, unremarkable in many ways for January. But this day is remarkable because it’s the day that’s been looming over us for six months. It’s the day of our foster son’s substantive interview at the Home Office. The basis for asylum being granted or denied.
