With 300 years of history, UK Fostering became the latest tenant of the magnificent Grade 2 Listed building called Poacher’s Pocket in North East Birmingham. UK Fostering have turned what was more recently a pub but previously a farm house, into a homely but state of the art office for its fostering team and a training hub for its carers.
Located in an ideal location for UK Fostering nationally, it now becomes the central hub for UK Fostering seminars and meetings for the regional teams across the country. CEO, Urs Bielmann is looking forward to encouraging more people to come forward to foster in the region. “Fostering is an immensely challenging, rewarding and life changing endeavour both for families but especially for the children who have suffered in their early lives. We hope that our new office will help highlight the need for foster carers and bring more people to contact UK Fostering to find out more.”
On Saturday the 7th July UK Fostering is inviting it’s Foster Carers, families and children, those under their fostering assessment and anyone who may be interested in fostering to attend the open day family celebrations. There will be bouncy castles, music, dance, sports, face painting and various food stalls representing food from around the world. If you are interested in fostering then you are welcome to come and see us on the day and enjoy the event.
If interested in attending please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and we can add you to the guest list so we can cater for numbers. Alternatively if you make a decision late in the day, just pop down and we can talk to you then about your interest in fostering.
