The Duchess of Cambridge celebrates foster care

Author: TACT

The Duchess of Cambridge is attending an event today to celebrate the work that foster carers do to support vulnerable young people across the UK.

At the event hosted by The Fostering Network and Islington Council, the Duchess will meet foster carers, social workers, and care leavers to discuss the role of fostering and the need for more foster carers, and to hear the stories of those who have experienced fostering first hand.

There is currently a need for at least 8,600 new foster families across the UK, particularly to offer homes to teenagers, disabled children and groups of brothers and sisters.

TACT CEO Andy Elvin said:

“TACT’s excellent foster carers and adoptive parents work tirelessly to improve outcomes for the UK’s most vulnerable children. It is fantastic that their commitment to children and young people is being highlighted today”.
