The Fostering Network welcomes television chef, author and care leaver Lorraine Pascale to her role as Government Fostering Ambassador in England.
Vicki Swain, campaigns manager at The Fostering Network, said: “Lorraine has long been an advocate for fostering in England. Her efforts in promoting fostering and helping to recognise those at the front line of fostering have always been respected and valued by the whole community.
“Lorraine has supported The Fostering Network’s annual Foster Care Fortnight for several years and was instrumental in raising awareness of the Care Inquiry into the care system in 2013.
“We look forward to continuing to work with children’s minister Edward Timpson and Lorraine Pascale in the coming months to keep fostering, which supports the vast majority of children in care, at the top of the agenda.”
