Find out more about fostering teenagers in the Dudley Borough

People interested in fostering teenagers can find out more by coming along to a drop-in session all about caring for young people.

Dudley Council’s fostering service will be holding the session on Tuesday 6 March from 11am to 3pm at Dudley Wood Neighbourhood Learning Centre.

The session will coincide with the launch of the service’s teenager campaign and will give people the chance to have an informal chat with both fostering advisors and existing carers.

The campaign, which launches on Monday (March 5), highlights the service’s need for carers for teenagers and encourages people who have an interest in fostering to think about how they could help a young person prepare for their future.

People can also visit to find out more about the fostering journey and hear firsthand from real foster carers, including Vanessa who looks after teenagers. As well as the opportunity to make a difference to a child’s life, fostering in Dudley promises to be a rewarding career offering 24 hour support, training and guidance 365 days a year. Councillor Anne Millward, cabinet member for Children’s Services, said:

“We’re always looking for new foster carers from all different backgrounds. Fostering is one of the best jobs in the world; no other job allows you to make such a difference in a young person’s life.

“There’s so much more to fostering than that first hello, it’s about nurturing each and every child, encouraging them to achieve their full potential.

"Each young person arrives with their own individual journey to go through - no matter what age they are - and our carers are the incredible people who help them through every step of the way." 

People can find out more about fostering in Dudley by emailing or calling 01384 815833.
