We are happy to announce that the applications are now open for the tenth series of The Great British Bake Off.

As always, we are keen to spread the word about applications being open and hear from anyone who might be interested in applying.

I was hoping that you might be able to help us spread the word by passing on this message by either popping the attached poster in your next newsletter, intranet or on social media along with the message below. Or if you are at all able to distribute hard copies of the flyer/poster to your pupils please do let us know how many you would like, and a member of the team can post some out to you.

 

The Great British Bake Off is looking for the UK’s best home bakers to enter the tent

Surrey County Council Fostering Service
 
Did you know that there are over 860 children in care in Surrey?
Over 230 of those children have had to be placed with foster carers outside Surrey, sometimes many miles away, as we don't have enough Surrey foster carers. If you think you may be able to help, do get in touch

Did you know that there are different types of fostering, and sometimes it is possible to work alongside fostering?

Book A Home Visit To Chat To Us About Fostering

If you would like to chat about fostering with us in your home, and have a couple of hours to spare Monday - Friday between 9am and 8pm, why not give our friendly Fran a call or email. There's no obligation to take your enquiry further, if after talking to us you decide that fostering isn't for you at this time.

Call: 0800 0969 626
