Fostering Online Information Evenings
The best way to learn about fostering is join us on one of our fortnightly information evenings.
They are now taking place online and are a great way to gather more knowledge around what fostering really is. All you have to do is log on and listen.
They are hosted by our Recruitment Officer, Jessica Mooney, along with one of our experienced foster carer. Jess will bring you through the assessment process and all the supports we have to offer at FFI. Our experienced carer will run you through their very own fostering journey. They will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have. Even if you do not have any questions someone else may ask a question that you would not of thought of.
Please email our recruitment officer on firstname.lastname@example.org to be on the invite list!
