Adoption and Fostering Champions

Every year we hold Adoption and Fostering Activity Days for prospective adopters, foster carers and children in care. This is a fun and successful way for prospective parents and children to interact in a relaxed environment. We require volunteers to help with the smooth-running of the day, which could include anything from face-painting to bouncy castle duty! Volunteers will need to be DBS checked and be able to share their motivation for wanting to join us at one of these amazing and emotional national events.
