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.
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.
LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week, organised by New Family Social, took place 5-11 March 2018. The week was to promote adoption and fostering to the LGBT community and this year the theme was ’10 Good Reasons’. Ealing Council is proud to welcome LGBT adopters and foster carers.
