We need more foster carers to help change local children’s futures for the better in the North East and nationwide, Mary is welcoming Foster Care Fortnight.
Mary said: "We have several thousand foster children in the North East but we need more foster families for those who through no fault of their own need stability and love as they grow up. I am therefore urging people who think they have the right skills and experience to consider becoming foster carers by contacting the fostering service."
Fostering North East, as a part of St Cuthberts Care, has provided a consistently high standard of foster care in North East England for over 50 years and is actively seeking people to become foster carers.
As well as enabling individuals and families to take on a caring role, we also work in partnership with Local Authorities throughout the region to provide homes for children in need of a positive experience of family life.
In our most recent Ofsted inspection we received an overall rating of good, which means that our service provision is strong. Download a copy of the full report.
The underlying values, aims and principles of Fostering North East are laid out in our Statement of Purpose.
So whether you've already decided to become a foster carer or just want to find out more, you cannot choose a better team to ask than Fostering North East.
