Fostering Information Session at the Hertfordshire Community Foundation On 21st July 2017

If you are in the Hertfordshire area and are interested in fostering then why not come and visit us at the Hertfordshire Community Foundation on Friday 21st July from 10am-12 noon.

Sunbeam Pride Fostering Agency are inviting people who may be interested in fostering to come to the information Session where a Social Worker will be present to answer any questions you may have and to have a general discussion about fostering, the role for the foster carer, and what support our foster carers receive.

Sunbeam Pride Fostering Agency are one of the preferred providers for Hertfordshire Local Authority so we need more foster carers in the Hertfordshire area to provide care for children in need. Come and visit us at
