STOCKPORT Council held a fostering recruitment open evening at the Reddish Green Centre. 
Local foster carers and employees from the Council’s Fostering team attended the event to offer information and advice to people considering become a foster carer.
Councillor Wendy Meikle, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Children and Young People, said: “I would encourage residents who are interested in becoming a foster carer to learn more about the challenging but hugely rewarding role and to find out more about the process of becoming a foster carer.
“We are particularly keen to hear from people who want to be part of our specialist fostering scheme and are looking for people to come forward who can provide a role model for our young people and teenagers and offer them the opportunity to gain family values and experience some good family times and be able to guide them to make their own choices in life.”
As part of the recruitment drive, Stockport’s fostering team hosted the Council’s fostering stall at Heald Green festival and were visited by the Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport to help support the urgent need to recruit local foster carers for local Stockport children.
