What people have said about information sessions

  • 'Overall it was very interesting and it was great to hear from the foster carer herself.'

  • 'A good informative session that provided an honest view of foster caring'
  • 'Great opportunity for casual chats with different speakers'
  • 'It was good to have a range of presenters representing different aspects of the process.'
