A new drop-in centre is being launched in East Yorkshire for would-be foster carers.

Offering advice and application packs, the service will operate out of the Carers’ Centre on Wednesday Market in Beverley.

The team leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s fostering service, Dave Glenville, says the facility will enable people who are considering the possibility of becoming a foster carer to pop in and have an informal chat about it.

He adds that the service is looking for people – ideally over the age of 25 – who care about young people and have the energy, time and commitment needed to provide them with the support they need at difficult times in their lives.

He said: ” Foster carers and their families are exceptional people. If you have the desire to help and give the time, energy and commitment, please come along and find out how you can become involved in the much-needed and highly worthwhile role as foster carer for East Riding children.”

From January 18, the drop-in facility will be open between 10am and 12 noon on Mondays and Fridays and from 1pm to 3pm on Wednesdays.

Meanwhile, a fostering information evening is due to be held at the Tickton Grange Hotel near Beverley at 6pm on January 20.

Anyone needing further information can contact the fostering team on 01482 396673 or via email at fostering@eastriding.gov.uk.
