New campaign for more fosterers
7:00am Friday 20th September 2013 in News
THE portfolio holder for children’s social care has backed a new campaign to boost foster carers in the borough.
Cllr Bukky Okunade says Thurrock Council’s campaign will focus on drop-in sessions over the next six months and an ad campaign that focuses on caring.
Cllr Okunade said: “Children who cannot live with their own families may need to live with foster carers for a few days, weeks or the whole of their childhood. “So foster carers play a really vital role in young people’s lives.”
“We are keen to hear from anyone who might want to know more about foster caring.
“Foster carers do not come in any specific shape or size.
“They come from all age groups and backgrounds and have one thing in common – they care and want to make a difference.”
Visit www.thurrock.gov.uk/fostering or attend the first drop-in session on Tuesday, September 24, between 9am and noon at the Springhouse Club, in Springhouse Road, Corringham.
