Fostering pop-up-shop (UK)

Innovative use of a pop-up shop: to encourage more people to foster kids.

From Cumbria County Council:

A pop-up-shop providing advice and information to potential foster carers is opening its doors this weekend.

Cumbria County Council has launched a drive to recruit new foster carers in Carlisle and as part of the campaign the county's fostering team has taken over an empty shop in the Lanes.

Between 10am and 3pm on Saturday (Feb 11) members of the team will be available at the shop (where Laura Ashley was based) to talk to and provide advice, help and information to those interested in finding out more about what being a foster carer involves and how fostering can transform lives and shape children's futures for the better.
