The latest statistics provided by Ofsted indicate that a further 1300 fostering families are needed in the North West alone. Next Stage for Fostering are currently recruiting Foster Carers to help meet this demand.
To help people who have thought about or are contemplating fostering a child to understand more about the fostering role, we are holding an Open Day on Tuesday, 6th December 2016 from 2pm to 7pm at Next Stage Offices, 28 Manchester Road, Westhoughton, Bolton, BL5 3QJ.
Our Open Day will provide an opportunity for you to have an informal, friendly chat with a member of our team. An experienced Foster Carer will also be there to share their first-hand experiences with you. It does not matter whether you know very little about fostering or if you are already a Foster Carer, everyone is welcome to find out what Next Stage for Fostering can offer.
There is no obligation to commit to anything; we simply promise to give you the best advice on fostering and what might suit you and your family circumstances. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have to help you decide if fostering is right for you.
If this sounds like it may interest you, then please come along and spread the word by telling your family and friends.
If you require any more information about our Open Day, you can call our office on 01204 201203 and speak to a member of our team.
We look forward to meeting you!
