THE UNSUNG HEROES

November 21, 2016

We don’t just salute our foster carers for all their good work. Many of our carers are supported by sons and daughters, grandparents, aunts and uncles or close friends and neighbours.

Brendan Warner, Fostering Manager said “There are just so many examples where household members or people in the carer’s support network become really good role models to a child  or young person. One of our carer’s brother regularly takes a young person to a local football match, another carer has a lovely mum who provides a bit of retail therapy to a very troubled teenager. Judy and Rob’s adult son takes their foster child fishing and it is really seen as special time”
