Testimonial 4

We love fostering

“It is the best job I have ever had and if I had my time again, I wouldn’t do anything different. What I really enjoy is being able to have a positive role in a child’s life and its lovely when you stay in touch with the child even after they have left the care system – it’s a real honour when that happens”
