Join our next online fostering information session at 9.30am OR 6pm on Wednesday 18th May!

Have you ever thought about becoming a foster carer? Would you like to find out what’s involved in looking after a child or young person in care? Then come and join us. You’ll meet one of the team, who will talk you through what fostering is all about, and how we assess and approve new foster carers.

As a foster carer, what really matters to us at Chrysalis Care is that you can offer your experience, time, and a spare bedroom to a child in need, to help them to experience a happy family life and grow in confidence.

To join this fostering information session, simply direct message us or email us at info@chrysaliscare.org and we’ll send you a link and the password to give you secure access to the Zoom meeting.

So bring yourself and your questions, and we look forward to meeting you!
