Thank You Foster Carers!
A letter from the Secretary of State for Education, Gavin Williamson and the Minister for Children, Vicky Ford was released on the 12th May to thank foster carers for all they do across the country.
Tens of thousands of foster carers around the UK are continuing to make a difference to the lives of young people in our society, even with the difficulties that COVID-19 has brought us.
Our foster carers have been going above and beyond during this period of uncertainty. The resilience, strength and courage they’ve shown over the last few months has been unparalleled and we echo the words of the Secretary of State in saying that “you, as foster carers, give so much to society”.
Here at Perpetual Fostering, we are deeply grateful for the continued positivity, adaptability and support foster carers have shown throughout the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
As it’s currently Fostering Fortnight we want to emphasise the urgency of new carers during this time. The vulnerable, young people in our society need us now more than ever and together, we can really make a difference to their lives for the better.
