Local people asked to consider fostering

For some households September can mean a change as children leave for university or school or people want to try a different path. 

If this is the position you're in,  Wiltshire Council would love you to consider fostering, to help meet the rising demand for foster carers. 

There are many different types of fostering options for you to choose, depending on your own preferences, experience and circumstances. These include short or long term, respite or emergency.

A fostering assessment will identify the type of foster care best suited to you and your family. Some foster carers choose to specialise in one area. 

They've increased their rates of payment for foster carers and you'll be supported every step of the way.

If you want to find out more or ask questions, you can join their drop-in session on Wednesday 27 September from 6pm -7pm.

For more information including details of upcoming information events, visit the fostering website www.wiltshire.gov.uk/fostering, email fostering@wiltshire.gov.uk, call 0800 169 6321 or text the word Foster to 60002.
