What people have said about information sessions

  • 'Overall it was very interesting and it was great to hear from the foster carer herself.'
  • 'Having thought about foster care for a number of years, I now have a much better understanding of the different types of care, how they might overlap/ lead on, and the potential issues involved. I feel better informed to discuss foster care with my family.'
  • '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.'
