Fostering in Barnsley

If you’re not sure if fostering's for you, our information sessions are a great way to learn more. They'll tell you about the fostering process before you make any decisions.

The relaxed and informal sessions give you a chance to chat to us about anything you're not sure about. You can also meet other people who are thinking about fostering. 

The drop-in sessions are held at Barnsley Town Hall from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on the following dates:

  • 18 October 2022
  • 29 November 2022
  • 31 January 2023
  • 28 February 2023
  • 28 March 2023
  • 25 April 2023
  • 30 May 2023
  • 27 June 2023
  • 25 July 2023
  • 26 September 2023
  • 31 October 2023

What our foster carers think

"We needed to know more about fostering to help us make a decision, so we went along to one of these sessions.  

People made us feel really welcome and talking to the team about some of our concerns really helped. We feel much more comfortable about the process now. Really glad we went."
