From modest beginnings as a small hamlet of just four residents in 1855, Swanwick has grown to become home to many people and the base for the National Air Traffic Service’s Air Traffic Control Centre.
Swanwick is also the hub for our foster carers and colleagues looking after foster children and young people, across central southern Hampshire, and the venue for another of our popular ‘drop-in’ sessions.
“We hold our Swanwick ‘drop-ins’ at our Blue Sky offices, on a regular basis to enable people to meet us, enjoy refreshments, have a very informal chat with us about the role of our foster carers. It’s a great way to show them how they too could provide a vulnerable child or young person with a safe and supportive home” explains senior social worker, Katie Sell. “It’s also invaluable to show them our training room and chat with them about the support and care we offer them and their fostering families.”
The next drop-in is on Wednesday 14th June from 3pm to 5pm and the whole thing will have a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere. We will encourage people to ask whatever question they may have about fostering, nothing is off-limits as we need people to be as informed as possible when making their decision to become foster carers.”
“We’d love to meet you, so why not pop along? We’re easy to find at Oslands Court, SO31 7EG, on the corner of Bridge Road and Oslands Lane - just look out for our Blue Sky car parked outside and come on in!”
