Spreading the word on fostering in Northamptonshire

Foster carers and social workers will be in Northamptonshire this weekend to speak to people about fostering.

A special pop-up shop organised by Northamptonshire County Council will visit Kettering as part of its summer tour.

Members of the public are encouraged to visit so they can find out more about fostering over a cup of coffee.

The pop-up shop will arrive on Saturday 24 August in the former Jessops shop on Gold Street.

In Northamptonshire, there are approximately 760 children in care and 215 foster families. The council is keen to increase the number of foster carers to increase the chances of a child in care staying in the local community.
