Lancashire Recruitment Evening

11th October, 2016

Our information evenings are informal and give you the chance to have a chat with social workers who are experienced in fostering. We'll tell you a bit about becoming a foster carer and how we can support you. We'll also show some short video clips. Some of our foster carers will be there to share their experiences and answer any of your questions. There is no need to book but please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Maya wants to be a vet…

She is an incredibly caring little girl who loves playing ‘mummy’ to animals and younger children. Her carers’ two dogs are her ‘babies’.

Maya is much quieter and more serious than her brother Zak and is doing very well at school. She plays the viola and is even learning to speak Polish! Drawing and crafty activities keep her entertained for hours. Many of her pictures are displayed proudly in her carers’ kitchen. She loves playing outside with her friends and we’ve heard she can ‘swim like a fish.’
