LGBTQ+ fostering event on November 25

Rachel Badham November 14, 2021

For LGBTQ+ people, couples and families interested in becoming foster carers, Brighton and Hove City Council is hosting a virtual information event on November 25 at 7 pm – 8.30 pm with experienced foster carers to answer any questions potential carers have. It will be held on Zoom and is free to register for. 

With the goal to help grow the LGBTQ+ fostering community, the session will cover a variety of topics, including the reasons children come into care and different types of fostering placements. It will also aim to “dispel the many myths that surround fostering, and all too often lead to people disqualifying themselves unnecessarily.”

Anybody interested in this free event can register online. Those with additional queries, or questions that they do not feel comfortable asking during the session, can email for information and advice.
