The i’s have been dotted and t’s have been crossed, and we can now announce the 15 local authorities that we will be working with to March 2014 to support them in their recruitment of foster carers.
Hello, my name is Bailey. My family have been fostering for 2 ½ years now. We foster children from 0-18 years with a preference of 0-6 years. Overall we have had 5 placements, all boys, one of which was a placement of siblings.
My name is Robbie and I live with my mum and dad, my brother Jamie and my two new sisters Shannon and Paige, and the baby.
There are always the good times and bad times, fostering has no exceptions there will always be a tear to shed once a child has gone, may it be tears of joy from the new family or carers or tears of sorrow to have to say goodbye to a loved family member and friend as they leave to somebody else.
My name is Paige and my family foster children who need looking after.
My foster brother came into my family in May 2012. I was at a school trip to M&Ds when he came. He was six months old when we got him.
Fostering is really fun because you can play with diffrent children!
My name is Dave, I am married with two young children from my second marriage and three older children now all at University from my first marriage.
Hi my name is Katie, I am a foster carer with my family.
To me fostering means looking after children that can't live with their parents, grandparents etc at that specific time and giving them the love and reassurance they need to live a happy life ( which every child deserves) until they either go back and live with their family or go to another carer
