"I have been a qualified social worker for over 20 years and I have always worked with children, young people and foster carers.  I began working with Fostering People in 2012, at that time we were just a new organisation with no foster carers, staff or even an office!  I am really delighted with what we have achieved over the years and how we have been able to grow and develop the service.  We now have a really experienced and hardworking staff team and many wonderful and committed fostering families providing outstanding care to children and young people.   I feel very privileged to work with such amazing dedicated people"!
