Fostering events

Dates and locations of upcoming fostering events.

What are fostering events?

We are pleased to be offering our face-to-face fostering events again.

During our events we will talk through a presentation where we cover the process, the training, the support you will receive and how you can apply to be a foster carer with East Riding. You can meet members of our lovely team, children and foster carers who will be happy to help answer your questions and have a chat with you. Refreshments will be provided and children are welcome.

To book on an event or for more information please contact us:
