The fostering team will be at Hanwell and Greenford Carnivals during June, with their fostering stand. Foster carers will be there too, to answer any questions and explain what it’s like to foster for Ealing. They will also be giving out information, mini toy bears and the chance to win a special prize. Details of the dates and times can be found on the ‘events’ page.
Foster Care Fortnight took place 14-27 May 2018 and we were out and about, around Ealing, to promote fostering. People who came to talk to us were able to meet the fostering team as well as some of our foster carers. We gave away free shopping bags, as well as information. The fortnight was a big success and we met many great people.
