Redbridge Council is holding a fostering information session tonight in Ilford, for carers they “urgently need” for children aged 11 and over.
If you could provide a caring and safe home for a young child, head to Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, from 6pm to 8pm where staff will answer all your questions.
To foster, you can be single, married, straight or gay, living together, working, unemployed or retired.
The council’s weekly allowances range from £288 to £441 per week.
Cllr Elaine Norman, cabinet member for children and young people, said: “You can make a real difference to a young person’s life by becoming a foster carer.
You may also want to watch:
“There is lots of support available, and social workers will be on hand to provide regular support and work closely with anyone who decides to foster.
“If you have a spare room and the energy and commitment to foster, please come along to the information session and find out more.”
