Foster a Child with Wiltshire Council

Find out about fostering on 18th November in Devizes Market Place

Wiltshire Council is looking for couples, families and individuals who can make space in their home and heart to help a child through a difficult time.

You’ll need a good sense of humour, plenty of tolerance and understanding, bags of enthusiasm and want to make a positive difference to young people’s lives.

You must be at least 21 or over to foster, have a spare bedroom, and drive. There’s no upper age limit as long as you’re fit and healthy enough to care for our children.

Above all, foster carers are known for their love, warmth, generosity, patience and positivity.

SWELP Digital Conference

The Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s digital conference, Engage, Evolve, Go! will take place from 8:30am-5pm next Thursday, 7th October register for your free place here.

The event aims to put our area’s business leaders centre stage, celebrating success, considering innovation for the future and providing a host of valuable workshops designed to support local organisations wherever they are on their business journey.

In addition to plenary speakers, networking and Expo, there will be the opportunity to attend beneficial workshops being hosted by local SMEs and organisations and hear from local SMEs in conversation with Paddy Bradley.

Pre-Lockdown Late Night Shopping

After the government’s Lockdown 2 announcement we jumped into action and publicised three evenings of late night shopping, with some retailers staying open until 10pm. Our local indies had three full-on days helping Christmas shoppers to find unique and quality gifts.

Shopping will go on through lockdown and beyond ~ our indies aren’t closed, despite most of us being stuck at home. Browse our Indiedevizes A-Z to find out who is delivering and offering click & collect, and follow us on Facebook  and Instagram
