Our next event

Chrysaliscare Fostering - Online Fostering Information Session

Chrysalis Care fostering information session - September 9th - 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

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 our fostering information session!
We’ll talk you through what fostering is all about, and how we assess and approve new foster carers, and one of our foster carers will share with you about what it’s really like—the challenges, and the rewards. 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 local child in need, to help them to experience a happy family life and grow in confidence.
To join this session, simply send a text with your name and home postcode to 07517 242885 and we’ll text back the access password to you—then all you need to do is click this meeting link to join: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/2266345212
