PEOPLE interested in fostering have the opportunity to hear first-hand experience from local foster carers at the Solihull Faiths Forum annual general meeting (AGM) on Tuesday 28 June at 6.30pm.
This year’s AGM will be highlighting the need for more foster carers in Solihull. Following some brief AGM business, there will be a presentation from the fostering team and a chance to meet local foster carers.
The Solihull Faiths Forum brings together faith groups who are interested in nurturing greater mutual understanding and friendship and engaging with the community.
It will take place at the Civic Suite, rear of Solihull Council House, Manor Square, Solihull, B91 3QB.
Coun Diane Howell, Solihull Council’s cabinet member for communities and leisure said: “Its’ great to see the Faiths Forum highlighting our need for more foster carers. I encourage you to come along and find out more about our fostering offer and the Solihull Faiths Forum.”
Coun Michael Gough, Solihull’s Council’s cabinet member for children and education added: “Our foster carers do an incredibly important and rewarding job. However, we need more people to provide a safe and supportive home for children across the borough. I urge anyone considering fostering to join the meeting.”
Pat Wilkinson, chair of Solihull Faiths Forum said: “The meeting is open to everyone. Come and hear first-hand accounts from foster carers and meet members of the Solihull Faiths Forum and find out what we do. We look forward to welcoming you.”
