Good evening all. My organisation, Now Foster is running and LGBTQ+ pizza drinks and fostering information evening, it would be great if you could share any of our tiles on any socials. Here is a bit of info about it: It will be a really informal pizza, drinks and information evening, we aren't trying to convince people that fostering is for them but allow people to be curious and build their knowledge in a safe environment to explore whether they think fostering would fit in their life and if not, at least they are more informed in regards to what is happening in their community. There is an over representation of LGBTQ+ kids in foster care yet an underrepresentation of carers to support them. We will be exploring different types of foster care but especially exploring weekend foster care, which is regular (say once a month) supporting the same child or children with a break, so foster children have access to holistic opportunities and safe adults in their lives and their full time foster carers have the opportunity to have a date night or just relax how they like. Let me know if you have any questions.
