Havering marks Foster Care Fortnight
Havering Council's foster care team will be in the community seeking new foster carers
Havering Council is joining Foster Care Fortnight, a national campaign running from 13 to 26 May to recruit new foster carers.
Residents are being encouraged to come along and meet members of our team at a series of events across the borough.
They will meet people who are currently foster carers to find out first-hand what’s involved in becoming a foster carer in Havering.
Councillor Robert Benham, Havering’s Cabinet member for Education, Children and Families, said:
“We’re on a drive to find more people who are willing to open their homes and their hearts to children who need a stable and loving environment.
“Being a foster carer is one of the most rewarding things a person can do, and our team will be out and about speaking to residents about the difference that they can make to a young person’s life.”
