3 foster carer families new to fostering from Chelmsford, Southend and Deal, (Young People at Heart’s first foster carer household in Kent), were recommended for approval as foster carers at the Young People at Heart fostering Panel held last night.
Founder of Young People at Heart, Gary Cox, said he was delighted the new foster carers had chosen to foster with the organisation and he was particularly pleased that one couple had specifically sought to foster with a not-for-profit fostering provider. He wished them all the greatest of success in making a difference in the lives of young people in care and added that as all the foster carer families currently with Young People at Heart had placements, they would provide much needed availability for the unprecedented level of referrals being received. Gary also said he was pleased that two of the new foster carer families each had 2 bedrooms available for fostering which gave them and the organisation the opportunity of keeping siblings together.
Young People at Heart are still looking to recruit more foster carers, so if you are intersted in fostering, would like to transfer with your existing placement or would like to find out more about Young People at Heart’s not-for-profit ethos, please complete the enquiry form on our website.
