Children First Fostering Agency are pleased to be working in partnership with the Fosterline Foundation, assisted by Summerhill Garden Centre to raise funds and awareness to support Fosterline; a confidential help and support telephone advice line for new and prospective foster carers.
Children First Fostering Agency are a local independent agency who are recruiting in and around Essex and surrounding areas. There are many myths around who can foster and by raising the profile of fostering in general and providing information we hope to dispel some of these myths.
Summerhill Garden Centre have come together with us in the form of this community project whilst at the same time encouraging support and awareness in respect of Fosterline. They have also agreed for Children First to hold ‘Carers Support Group’ in the cafeteria area on December 2nd.
The Christmas displays at Summerhill are well known and receive many visitors every year, the display is already receiving lots of attention and the tree is becoming covered in stars from the families making Christmas wishes.
There is a constant need for foster carers across the country and Christmas is a particularly poignant time of year in this respect and Children First, Summerhill and Fosterline have all come together to work as one to increase the profile of foster caring and how positive outcomes can make such a huge difference to young people.
Summerhill Garden Centre have provided an area for a Christmas Tree and a display that encourages families to ‘Make a wish for Christmas’ and place it on the tree whilst at the same time making a donation to Fosterline.
The display continues throughout the Christmas period please come and visit and make a wish.
Please call Kim Selfe- Carer Recruitment Officer Children First Fostering Agency for more information or you are interested in fostering on 01268 567330.
