Hi, I'm Lindsey.
I'm the Mockingbird coordinator at Trust Fostering, here in Doncaster. I'm really excited about the launch of our new Mockingbird hub; let me tell you why!
Mockingbird has been part of fostering in Doncaster since 2015. It started off as a pilot project but has become so much more than that. Mockingbird is now an embedded part of our fostering service and we are incredibly proud to support almost a third of our fostering community through our hubs.
The thing I love most about Mockingbird is seeing the relationships form, not only with the children but also amongst the carers. It really is like a big extended fostering family. Through the laughter, smiles and the tears, people forge connections that can last a lifetime.
I'm very lucky to have not only an amazing team of hub carers, but also two awesome liaison workers, Judy and Tracey, who help our Mockingbird hubs to fly!
Yesterday, we launched our fifth hub, and although we did it virtually, the buzz and excitement was still in the air. Our new hub carer, Marylin, has a so much to offer not only to her families but to the rest of the team too! Marylin, Judy and Tracey have worked incredibly hard to get things ready for the launch, and I hope you will join me in wishing Marylin the best of luck on her new adventure!
