Find out how you can foster with Diagrama

We’re looking for ordinary people who can make an extraordinary difference to the lives of vulnerable children, and offer them endless support at a time when they need it most. We’d love to hear from people who can really picture themselves putting the children they care for at the centre of their lives.

"The value of having a nurturing spirit and a will and determination to have a positive impact really cannot be underestimated." - Catherine Moore, fostering manager.

Drop-in sessions

Throughout Foster Care Fortnight we are holding several drop-in events for people to find out more about the role and how they can access training to become a foster carer.

You don’t need to have any formal qualifications as we can train you in the skills you’ll need to carry out the job, provided you have the essential qualities needed.

You will need to be aged over 21 and have a spare bedroom.

Our foster carers come from all walks of life, some are pensioners, others have flexible jobs which fit around the children they care for, so come and find out how fostering can work in your life.

Our fostering team will be waiting to welcome you on Floor 3 at Anchorage House, Chatham, on Wednesday May 16, Friday May 18, Tuesday May 22 and Thursday May 24, 2018, between 10am and 4pm, to answer your questions about transforming young lives through fostering.

We will let you know more about the recruitment process, the skills required, training provided and excellent 24/7 support service and generous benefits package that our foster carers receive.

YOU CAN FIND US AT:

3rd Floor, Anchorage House, 47-67 High Street, ME4 4EE
