Meet Laura

Throughout this #FCF20 you will have a chance to meet some of our fostering family team who will be with you every step of the way.

Hi, I am Laura I am a social work assistant within the fostering team.

My main role is with the recruitment and assessment team of the fostering service working closely with the social workers supporting people who are taking the steps towards becoming foster carers for Trust Fostering.

If you are thinking of becoming a foster carer and you make an enquiry, I am one of the first people you would get to speak with.

I love working in Trust fostering as I get to meet lots of different people who all share one thing in common wanting to help and give children somewhere safe to stay when they need it the most.

My role lets me help support foster carers in lots of different ways by being a port of call for them to get in touch, offering support when needed, organising events for foster carers and helping to run some of the fostering services support groups for our foster carers.

If you have been thinking about fostering but have not yet made any enquires please get in touch by calling 0808 129 2600 I would be happy to answers some of your questions and chat to you about being a foster carer for the Trust.

I would like to end by saying a big thank you to all our foster carers and tell them what an amazing job they are doing they truly are hero’s during this current time, and I hope to see some of you soon.

Take care and stay safe.
