Fostering Friendly Event

Make your business fostering friendly. The fostering team at North Lincolnshire Council would like to invite you to learn about their Fostering Friendly Scheme and attend their launch event at The Baths Hall on Friday 17 March.

Nearly 40% of foster carers nationally combine fostering with other work and they would love to see this increase.

Their scheme is open to all types of businesses and will help employers to support and understand the roles of their employees who foster and encourage those who might be interested in fostering – showing strong social responsibility and making it easier for people considering fostering to remain in employment.

Members of the scheme can support in a variety of ways including raising awareness in the community, offering discounts for foster carers, offering space for training or events, displaying posters or leaflets, sharing information on social media or implementing a fostering friendly HR policy for all foster carers in their employment.

Businesses who join the scheme will benefit from comprehensive information, guidance and support from the North Lincolnshire Council Fostering team and more information about the scheme can be found on the North Lincolnshire Council website: www.northlincs.gov.uk/fostering-friendly
