In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been changes in the way services can be delivered. Virtual information sessions have been introduced so people can find out about fostering, meet the team as well as foster carers and ask any questions, from the safety of their own homes. Details of upcoming sessions can be found on the events page.
Foster Care Fortnight took place 11-24 May and this year the theme was ‘This is Fostering’. The annual campaign is organised by The Fostering Network and aims to increase awareness of fostering and encourage more people to become foster carers.
Donna and Tim Clapham were announced as Ealing Foster Carers of the Year 2019 at the Foster Carers’ Awards Ceremony on Saturday 30 November. Donna and Tim were chosen for their dedication and commitment to the children and young people they have looked after. This year the awards ceremony had a Christmas theme and around 160 guests enjoyed a three-course meal, disco and entertainment. The annual event is to thank all foster carers for their hard work throughout the year.
