You are welcome to attend any of our fostering information events.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have cancelled our information evenings and drop-in events.
Thurrock children do still need foster carers, however, so please do let us know you’re interested in fostering.
Listen to the Thurrock Fostering podcast, recorded for foster care fortnight 2020.
When you apply to become a foster carer, all information you give us will be treated in confidence.
Equally, as a foster carer, you will be expected to respect the privacy of the children and families with whom you come into contact.
