Foster carers are needed now more than ever to provide safe and loving homes for local children.

Throughout #fostercarefortnight (10 to 23 May 2021) and focusing on this year’s theme of ‘Why We Care’, North Lincolnshire Council is raising awareness of the work foster carers do and how foster care transforms the lives of children and young people.

Foster carers come from all walks of life and do not need any specific qualifications to help make a huge difference to a young person. The council would love to hear from anyone who think they may have the room, time and love to give.

A virtual Fostering Information Event will be taking place on Thursday 27 May from 6pm, providing the opportunity to speak with the council’s ‘Outstanding’ team and to ask any questions you may have on the fostering journey.
