Information Events


One of the best ways to find out more about fostering with Walsall Council is to come to one of our special Information Events. They’re relaxed and informal with no pressure whatsoever to ‘sign up’.


Members of the fostering team host the events and there are usually experienced foster carers there for you to chat to and find out first-hand what it’s like to foster. There are also information packs to take away so you can think things over in your own time:
Come and see us during Foster Care Fortnight!  All sessions, except for Friday 25th May, are drop-in sessions with no need to book in advance!!


We are #ProudToSupportFostering !!
