Foster Care Fortnight is an important time to recognise the vital, often lifechanging work of foster carers and to raise awareness. I was glad to meet with the Southwark Council fostering team at the Goose Green fair who were speaking to local people about the importance of fostering and providing information on how to find out more about it.
Foster families do amazing and rewarding work to provide stable, loving homes for some of our most vulnerable children. Unfortunately, there are currently not enough foster carers in the right places across the country. You can find out more here: southwark.gov.uk/fostering
