Tsigehana Asefeha and Eyob Tesfazghi, a couple who have been fostering for Ealing since 2012, have been named Ealing Council’s Foster Carers of the Year, at the annual foster carers’ awards ceremony. They have looked after several children and were recognised for their exceptional care of a particular young person.
Adoption Week took place 15-21 October 2018. The annual event was organised by First4Adoption, a national adoption information service. This year the focus was on adopters themselves. The event was to increase awareness of adoption and to highlight the children who are currently waiting to be adopted. If you would like to know more, please get in touch with us.
We recently ran a competition at Hanwell and Greenford Carnivals to ‘name the bear’ from our fostering branding and are delighted to announce the winners. Jackie from Northolt (left) was the winner for Hanwell Carnival, with her name ‘Hope’ and Janet from Greenford (right) was the winner for Greenford Carnival, with her name ‘Alfred’. Both winners each received a prize of a giant bear and vouchers.
The fostering team were at Hanwell and Greenford Carnivals during June, with their fostering stand. Foster carers were there too, to answer questions and explain what it’s like to foster for Ealing. They were also giving out information, mini toy bears and the chance to win a special bear and a vouchers for a family day out.
