Tullamore event planned as part of Fostering Awareness Week 2017

Fostering First Ireland and Fostering Awareness Week 2017

Fostering Awareness Week runs from February 27 until March 3. It is a wonderful opportunity to promote public awareness of fostering, to celebrate the amazing work that foster carers do and to shine a light on how foster care can change the lives of vulnerable children.

Fostering makes a real difference in a child’s life, providing children and young people with a loving home and the support and encouragement they need to flourish.

There is currently a shortage of foster carers across the country and Fostering First Ireland (FFI) wants to hear from potential foster families who are keen to make a difference and provide a safe environment to young people in 2017.  

They are running information events nationally including in Tullamore at the Brigde Centre on Wednesday March 1 from 11am-3pm.

The goal of these events is to meet people who may be interested in hearing more about how to become a foster carer. There will also be opportunities to speak with one of our foster carers at all of these events who can tell you how fostering has changed their lives as well as the lives of the children they care for. for a full list of nationwide events and more information
