NEWS IN FOCUS | SE01EP50 Foster Care

In the final episode of the ‘Charity and Community’ series – the issue of Foster Care goes under the news in focus spotlight.

On this week’s program with Craig Priest, following on from Foster Care fortnight we discover more about life as a foster carer – as Nottinghamshire County Council aim to add to the number of foster carers across the district.

During this week’s program, Craig visits experience fostering couple Rob and Bev Smith from Mansfield, to find out how fostering has changed their perspective on life over the past 18 years – whilst another midlands based foster carer Cathy Saxton reveals how her views have changed, as she starts out on her journey.

Nottinghamshire County Councils Naomi Sills explains the process behind fostering, whilst Mansfield 103.2s James Brandon also finds out about the different types of Foster Care people can take, as he chats to Alan Barker who along with his wife and young family, offer rest bite care.

Also this week, Collette Abbiss from Five Rivers Foster Care discusses how they help support foster carers such as Cathy Saxton throughout the process – more details on Five Rivers, can be found here
