We will be aiming to visit all towns in Suffolk over the coming few weeks and months so look forward to meeting you there.
If you would like to arrange to call into our main office in Ipswich to discuss fostering in person please call us on 01473 264800 or follow us on Facebook to find out about future events.
Following the home visit, the next stage in the process is to attend our preparation course. This course is broken down into several sessions, held over a couple of weeks, generally including two Saturdays and one evening. Our preparation course will help you decide if fostering is right for you and your family, and to start to learn the skills and information required to help you look after the child you foster.
Dates for this year's preparation courses are as follows:
Starting: Saturday 13th September (10am - 4pm)
Wednesday 17th September (7pm - 9.30pm)
Ending: Saturday 20th September (10am - 4pm)
Starting: Saturday 4th October (10am - 4pm)
