What is an information call back?

When you book an information call back from a member of our fostering team at a time that suits you, you'll be able to find out about the different fostering options open to you, the benefits of fostering in Bradford and how you can make a difference.


You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and have them answered by expert advisors who have worked with many local carers in the area.


We all lead busy lives so understand the importance of flexibility, so we offer a variety of appointment times during the day and early evening.


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available online, though some information you may read online will not reflect our services and may be incorrect or out of date.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.


We recommend anyone interested in fostering in the Bradford district to download our latest information pack and rates sheet from our website to receive the most up to date and relevant information about our services.


Our blog is also an excellent resource to hear from current foster carers about their experiences fostering with us.


There are many questions you may have, especially surrounding your personal circumstances, which cannot be answered in an information pack or via a blog. Speaking one to one with an experienced advisor can also clarify any concerns you may have.

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.
