Welcome to our first e-newsletter in 2021.
A lot has happened already this year. Not only are we planning a series of webinars for members to amplify your voice which you can find out more about below, we have also launched a campaign action to get foster carers prioritised in the vaccine rollout in the UK. So far our campaign has seen almost 1,300 letters sent to MPs and over 800 sent to MSPs. We are pleased to hear that foster carers in Northern Ireland are now eligible for priority access to the vaccine and many local authorities in England have prioritised their foster carers to get vaccinated too.
In this e-newsletter you can also read about our membership for retired foster carers, and ways to keep active and have fun while supporting our work.
Last but not least you can also find an update from the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care in England and more information on how to get involved in their 'Experts by Experience' group.
Thanks so much for your time and your continued support. We hope you have had a good start to the year and we look forward to working with you to make foster care the best it can be throughout 2021!
All the best
The Fostering Network
