Are you a foster friendly employer? You’re sure to have various parental policies but the chances are you don’t have one for staff who are foster carers or wish to become one. At a time when there is a record number of children in care and a national shortage of foster carers, this is more important than ever.
Businesses like yours can really help make the difference, showing themselves to be community-focussed and inclusive by becoming foster friendly. What’s more, becoming foster friendly could also mean you expand your talent pool. With this in mind…
Slough Children’s Services Trust would like to invite you to a foster friendly business breakfast, on Thursday 21 November, at Ipsen, 190 Bath Road, Slough, SL1 3XE, from 10-11.30am. You will hear from a working foster carer, Ipsen’s Employee Relations Manager and SCST’s Chief Executive. We will also have a foster friendly employee policy to share with you.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re able to attend. We hope to see you there!
Please also see our ‘Working with business to change lives‘ page, which tells you more about the work we do with Slough’s vulnerable children and how you can get involved as a local employer.
