    Bromley Council honours foster carers for their service

    Post  Staff on Sun Apr 19, 2009 5:40 pm

    Foster carers in the Borough were honoured at a special awards ceremony at Bromley Civic Centre, on Thursday, March 26. The Mayor of Bromley, Councillor Denise Reddin, presented awards for long service, retiring foster carers and those who recently achieved NVQ qualifications.

    The Portfolio Holder for Children and Young People, Councillor Ernest Noad, attended the event to express his gratitude for foster carers’ contribution to improving the life chances of all of Bromley’s children in care. He said: “Foster carers are the people who are on duty all day, every day, providing around the clock care for our children. I and the whole council are aware of and really appreciate the task that foster carers undertake on behalf of Bromley, namely welcoming children and young people in to your homes so that they can experience being part of a stable family environment. This gift should never be underestimated in its importance to our children.”

    Bromley Council’s fostering service is working to attract even more potential foster carers. Cllr Noad added: “The work of foster carers is invaluable and is often undertaken in very challenging circumstances. They give a positive family life experience to children who for many reasons cannot be with their own parents. We are keen to encourage more potential carers to join us in this most worthy task.”

    Anyone interested in becoming a foster carer for Bromley is encouraged to contact the fostering service on 08000 288298 or fostering.andadoption@bromley.gov.uk
