Meet some of our foster parents

I have worked in Social Care for the past 19 years, having had the opportunity to work across various Children Services. My journey with Fostering People started 8 years ago, first as a Senior Supervising Social Worker then as a Team Manager within the East Midlands. I continue to enjoy working in a family and welcoming environment, fantastic team of Social Workers who work together to support our dedicated Foster Parents who welcome children and young people in their households. I continue to embrace this fantastic journey with a mindset of "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much" .
