Deciding to foster children could be the most profound life choice you make - you will have a lot of questions to make sure it is the right choice for you. 
Sefton Council’s fostering information evenings are the ideal opportunity to meet their experts in person, learn about fostering and ask them and local foster carers any burning questions you have over a warm brew in the beautiful surrounds of Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre. 
Drinks are provided free while you can either bring your own food or purchase it from the Lakeside Bistro.
