The support I get is phenomenal. My husband has a stressful job so I don’t always want to vent to him but I know I can phone my social worker any time, there is always someone on the end of a phone that I can talk to.

We’ve met with staff from the National Fostering Group and done buddying. I love the training and meeting up with other people and hearing their experiences and ideas.

I would never go to another agency now, no matter what.
