Help offered

If you are a foster carer with concerns or queries about coronavirus and local practice (such as contact arrangements) or its impact on your fostering because of health then please contact your fostering service in the first instance as they know you, your family and the children in your care. During this time of uncertainty due to coronavirus, all our helplines will remain open as usual for any fostering-related queries, including those arising as a result of coronavirus.

Call us on 028 9070 5056 from Monday to Thursday from 9.30 am - 2 pm and on Friday 9.30 am - 11.30 am. Don't forget that the Government has a dedicated coronavirus helpline for foster carers and fostering services: 0800 046 8687.
