Do You Have What it Takes?

Friday 6th August 2010

 

Bedfordshire’s Adoption and Fostering Service will be on hand at Bedford Market, every Wednesday, during the summer holidays, to talk to people in the community interested in the prospect of becoming foster carers.

 

So whether you are decided on a future as a foster carer, or this is a new idea and you’d just like to find out more, the team can discuss the process with you on a one-to-one basis, giving you all the information you need to help with your decision.

 

Historically, the profile of foster care was not high and people did not always consider whether they could become involved.  But today, in a world where everything is more openly discussed and information is more accessible the service has embraced this ethos by welcoming you to come along, have a chat and find out more.

 

 

Cllr Anita Lewis, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services at Central Bedfordshire Council said: “The Fostering and Adoption teams are extremely motivated and passionate about what they do and will do all they can to make sure potential Foster Carers and Adoptive parents are supported and informed as much as possible.”

 

Councillor David Sawyer, Portfolio Holder for Children, Schools and Families at Bedford Borough Council said: “Nationally there is a shortage of foster carers. Our established carers are invaluable for so many local children. It is important that we do all we can to recruit more in order to give local children the best care possible.”
