Find out about more fostering
PEOPLE are being invited to find out more about fostering at a special pop up shop in Weston- super-Mare.
North Somerset Council's fostering team is setting up the shop in a vacant unit at the Sovereign Centre all next week so people can find out more about being a foster carer over a cup of coffee.
A vacant shop will be turned into a lounge
The council is desperately short of foster carers, especially for teenagers and foster carers and members of the council's fostering team will be available all week to have informal discussions with people interested in finding out more.

North Somerset Council service leader for fostering, Jenny Slee, said: "This is the perfect opportunity to meet our wonderful carers and to find out more about fostering without any pressure."
The team is also holding a fostering information evening at Mendip Green Primary School, Weston, on January 29 from 6.45pm until 8.30pm. The 'fostering recruitment shop' will be open from January 21-27 during when the Sovereign Centre is open.
North Somerset Council currently has around 90 foster families but the number of children entering care has continued to rise steeply and there are now over 250 children looked-after in the district. Fostering can provide a welcome additional income for many individuals or families, especially now when many people are looking for extra income.
