Find out more about fostering

If you want to know more, we'd love to chat with you. But, if you're not ready for that, there are other ways you can get in touch.

Curious about fostering – join us at one of our events

Join us online

We’re holding some online events for anyone who is interested in fostering and wants to find out more – save the date and follow the links below. Feel free to join us for the whole thing (about an hour), or drop in to ask a question either in person or in the chat.

Whether it’s early days and you’re just exploring what’s involved, you have questions that you need answering or you’ve been thinking about it for a while, and you’re ready to take the next step – join us and find out more from one of our experts.

What happens next is entirely up to you.

Find out:

  • What it takes to be a great foster carer.
  • How fostering works in Oxfordshire and what that means for our children.
  • The different types of fostering we provide.
  • Our unique support and training, from the moment you sign up.
  • The financial support you receive – in pay and expenses.

And, of course, we'll be able to answer any other questions you may have.
