What happens in an information call back?

Information call backs are a great way to learn more about life as a foster carer – but what happens during a call back?

What happens during an information call back?

You’ll hear about what it’s like to be a foster carer, what training and support we offer and discuss what would be the best type of fostering for you and your family.

You also have the chance to ask questions to our team who have worked with hundreds of foster families across the Bradford district.

We all lead busy lives so understand the importance of flexibility, so we offer a variety of appointment times.

If you decide fostering is not for you, that’s absolutely fine! This is what our call backs are for – to help you understand whether fostering is right for you and your family at this time.

Who will I be speaking with?

You’ll be speaking with an experienced member of our fostering team who have worked with many local carers in the area or are in fact foster carers themselves.

How long will the call last?

Our information call backs usually take between 30-40 minutes. They may take longer if you have lots of questions you wish to ask.

Can’t I just find the information online?

There is lots of incredible content about fostering available online, though some information you may read online will not reflect our services and may be incorrect or out of date. It’s not the same for every fostering agency either – some agencies have different priorities or recruitment criteria.

What sort of things should I ask?

Ask anything you’d like – we can assure you that we’ve likely heard your question before! From finances to housing, family situations and experience, we’ll keep everything you say confidential.
