Can you put a banner up for fostering?

Summary

In Somerset, we have roughly 200 in house foster carers and more than 550 Children Looked After – a number which has grown significantly in recent months due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. As restrictions relax and we all adapt to a new ‘normal’, interest in fostering has steadily declined, whilst our need for foster carers remains as prevalent as ever.

Main News Story

Fostering In Somerset are now trying to secure a number of key locations with high visibility that could safely display a banner to further promote fostering. Many schools and colleges have large metal fences, often close to roads and high traffic areas – perfect locations for the above mentioned banners. If you would like to help, and feel you could accommodate a banner in any outward facing location (either now or in the Autumn Term), please contact Michelle Mitchell, Fostering Comms Officer, on 01823 355020 or email mmitchell@somerset.gov.uk
