We welcome Nadhim Zahawi to his new role as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Education. We note with some concern that this is an unpaid position, and truly hope this is not a reflection of the priority placed on the role by this Government.
We are delighted to announce a new partnership with The Mortgage Brain, who are taking over from Endsleigh to provide specialist mortgage advice to our foster carer members and a discounted arrangement fee for a completed mortgage. Advisers at The Mortgage Brain have helped many foster carers secure mortgages over the past five years and they are looking forward to helping our members find the right mortgage for them.
The following foster carers received an MBE for services to children and families: Barbara Bower, Arthur Frost, Dorothy Frost, Pearline Howard, Michael Squire, Rachel Squire and Martin Williams.
Margaret Harvey, vice chair of Camden Association of Foster Carers was awarded the same accolade for services to children.
