Caz, a foster carer from Yorkshire has been fostering with Fostering People for 10 years. One of the first children she fostered was 12-year-old Britney, who lived with Caz until she was 17.

Now an adult with a young family of her own, Britney accompanied Caz on a recent visit to London to share their heart-warming experience of fostering from the perspective of a foster parent, but also from the viewpoint of a young person who grew up in care.

They talk with Kate, (Towie star and wife of footballer Rio Ferdinand) about their early days of living together and the challenges, to their incredibly close relationship today.

You can hear the interview in full ‘The Rewarding Reality of Fostering with Caz and Britney’, on Kate’s podcast Blended, which is a celebration of blended families everywhere.

This interview is honest and heartfelt and as such discusses some elements such as drug abuse and eating condition. As Kate says in her introduction, please be kind to yourself if these issues feel too close to home.
