Encouraging those interested to come along to the event, South Eastern Trust Fostering Head of Service, Nuala Hanna said: “There are currently over 3000 children and young people who are reliant on foster care in Northern Ireland. Foster care provides children and young people who cannot live with their birth families with a safe and loving home where they feel valued, respected, and cared for.

“Every child deserves a stable home. 

“We would love to see as many people as possible come along to this event to discover how they can make a difference to a child’s life, to meet other foster carers & young people and hear about the process, support and training offered.”
