Adoption Week is taking place all this week (15-21 October). The annual event is organised by First4Adoption, a national adoption information service. This year the focus is on adopters themselves. The event is 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.
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.
