During National Foster Care Week, 13-20 September 2015, local foster care agency Foundations Care is asking local residents if they can ‘make a difference?’

With over 30 years’ experience in supporting children, young people and their families, Foundations Care value and recognise the important role foster carers play in ensuring the best possible outcomes for our most vulnerable children.

Foster carers are ‘ordinary people doing extraordinary things.’ We welcome carers from all walks of life; single carers, married couples, same sex couples, childless carers, carers of all ages and all cultural backgrounds – we need you!
