the story of

Liz and Dan

Liz and Dan opened up their hearts and home and became foster carers for in May 2021.

“After working for many years as a primary school teacher in an area of extreme deprivation, I was aware that my classroom was a place of nurture and safety for many vulnerable children but I was restricted in the care I could offer. My husband and I researched foster care before the pandemic but were extremely lucky to go through the assessment phase and panel digitally. In fact, the pandemic actually gave us the space and drive needed to complete the assessment quickly as we had plenty of time to complete our “homework” tasks. This stage of the assessment was hugely cathartic and allowed us both to fully understand the abilities and positive traits that we could bring to fostering. Working alongside our supervising social worker, we had a young man placed with us who has brought so much fun and laughter into our home. Offering him a home close to school has allowed him to keep his sense of identity and heritage, whilst settling in to our family life.”
