FtSE Member News: Community Foster Care will be at various venues in Gloucestershire during Foster Care Fortnight
Staff from Community Foster Care will be offering advice to adults at information stands during Foster Care Fortnight (May 13-26).
At the same time, children will be able to take part in face-painting and potting up sunflower seeds.
“We want to plant the seed about fostering into the minds of adults, and we’re giving children something to do at the same time,” said Chris Cawkwell, Registered Manager for CFC, based at Staunton .
From 10:00 am until 16:00, you can come along and ask CFC staff any fostering-related questions at the following venues:
Monday 13 May 2013
Blooms Garden Centre, Haresfield, near Stonehouse, GL10 3DP
Wednesday 15 May 2013
Regent Arcade Shopping Centre, High Street, Cheltenham
(We'll be on the ground floor by the glass lift)
Friday 17 May 2013
Blooms Garden Centre, Evesham Road, Cheltenham
Monday 20 May 2013
Dobbies Garden World, Siddington, Cirencester, GL7 6EU
(We'll be by the exit)
Wednesday 22 May 2013
Brockworth Garden Centre, Shurdington Road, Brockworth, Gloucester
“Hopefully people interested in foster care will come and talk to us,” said Chris. “They may not have had children of their own, but could have the life experience that would make them a great foster parent. We’d like people to go away thinking that fostering could be for them.”
Look for our pink and purple stand!
