Consell organises info sessions for foster families

The Formentera Office of Social Welfare is pleased to unveil a series of informative talks to publicise the office's foster care service for neglected children.

Rafael Ramírez, councillor of social welfare, saying the service enables children under public guardianship to be temporarily hosted by an alternative family, encouraged local families "to attend the talks to learn first-hand about the service".

Talks will be held in the Consell de Formentera auditorium.

Assessment and training
Families who join the programme undergo a process of assessment and training overseen by Consell de Formentera staff. This team also offers support during fostering. Service personnel evaluate applications based on economic, personal and social circumstances and various criteria.

The foster care programme includes financial assistance for costs associated with child-rearing and training.
