Alice Keith-Scott, a social worker with Southwark Fostering Services, will be joined by New Family Social for an evening of information sharing in the Fire Station Kitchen.

Hear how fostering helps young people, listen to first-hand accounts from long-term foster carers and learn what is needed to become a foster carer yourself. Gain insight into what it’s like to be foster carer and ask questions about the fostering process in a relaxed environment with experienced professionals.

This is also a great chance to see Who Cares: Stories of Looking After Children in Southwark, an exhibition of portrait photographs celebrating foster carers in Southwark, open until 9pm in Gallery 4.


New Family Social is the only national LGBT+ adoption and fostering charity in the UK. It provides support, improves the treatment of LGBT+ people in the adoption and fostering process, encourages inclusion and works directly with its members and agencies to find new families for children in care.
