Information sessions

If you are interested in fostering the best place to start is our information meeting. Unfortunately at the moment due to current health concerns associated with COVID-19, we will not be able to proceed with our face to face information meetings. However this does not mean that your fostering journey can't start right now.

Next steps

  1. Enquire online and we will email you our fostering information pack and a link to our fostering information meeting presentation for you to watch at home.
  2. Once you have viewed the presentation if you wish to proceed, please get in touch with us by emailing fosteringandadoptionbus@staffordshire.gov.uk and we will arrange for one of our social workers to arrange a virtual initial visit.
  3. If you have questions you can also call us on 0800 169 2061 during office hours.

We are also holding Facebook live streams on the following dates. You can join us LIVE on Facebook and ask your questions to one of our social workers and foster carers.
