The council’s fostering team will be out and about during the fortnight and it’s a great opportunity to chat through what being a foster carer is all about. The pop-up events will be at:

  • Southglade Leisure Centre on Wednesday 17 May from midday until 6pm
  • Djanogly Leisure Centre on Thursday 18 May from 10am until 4pm
  • Victoria Leisure Centre on Friday 19 May from 11am until 5pm
  • Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre on Monday 22 May from midday until 5pm.

On Tuesday 23 May, Stadium Leisure on Nottingham Road Basford will be hosting two information events from midday until 2.30pm and another from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. The fostering team and city foster carers will be on hand to answer any queries.
