Foster Carers Urgently Needed In Dorset


8:12am 14th May 2013

Fostering charities say they urgently need more people to offer a child a home in Dorset.

The Council say there are a growing number of children in care across the county and they need more families to come forward and help.

Research suggests a lack of carers means vulnerable children are being moved too many times.

A series of road shows are taking place in Dorset throughout the next fortnight in a bid to get more people to become foster parents.

The County Council say they need 30 new foster carers every year to cope with demand.

There are 3 sessions taking place today (Tuesday 14th May) at the Co-op in Swanage, Wareham Quay (2-4pm) then the Leisure Centre(4-6pm).

The workshops are running in Bridport at Bucky Doo Square on Wednesday between 10am and 4pm.

Next Wednesday (22nd May) the roadshow's in Dorchster at the following places and venues:

Dorchester Sports Centre 9.30-11am and 3.45-5.30pm, Tudor Arcade 12-3.30pm
