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.
World Book Day 2018 takes place on 1 March. To mark the event, we have produced special fostering and adoption bookmarks featuring a quote from Winnie the Pooh by A.A Milne “We didn’t realise we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun.”
All primary schools in Ealing will be given the bookmarks to place in every child’s book bag. They will also be available in all Ealing libraries.
Foster carers come from all different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds and look after children from all different backgrounds too. Here are some positive and inspiring stories featured in the media from some Muslim foster carers…
We held another fantastic Foster Carers’ Awards Ceremony on 11 November 2017.
The formal event was to thank our foster carers for all their hard work and commitment throughout the year and was also a chance for them to have some fun and relax for an evening!
We presented awards to carers who had been fostering with us for some time, as well as announcing the Foster Carer of the Year.
