On Wednesday 3rd April, our East London Team headed out for a day of team building whilst giving back to the local community. The Team went to Newham Foodbank and helped with weighing of food items, checking expiry dates and stacking the shelves. They all had a really good time and enjoyed working together as a team for this fantastic cause.

Many children in care have experienced receiving food from foodbanks, so its always great to give back to those who have also touched the hearts of those we are trying to support.

On a very wet Monday this February half term, a group of four carers and six children/young people enjoyed a game of bowling at Tenpin, Acton. The lights were dimmed, the music started and the bowling competition began! It was great to see the children, young people and carers competing against each other and it was definitely a lot of fun, with a competitive edge! We finished the activity with lunch in the café, where everyone tucked into a meal and drink and talked about the fun they had and compared scores.

It’s always lovely to see the joy on our children’s and young people’s faces at get togethers like this and we always love to hear their feedback. Here is some from the children and young people we spoke to:

“I enjoyed just about everything, bowling and making friends”,
“I have made a new friend and enjoyed the company of others that are my age”
“I enjoyed the bowling and food”

On Saturday 22nd December, we held our Festive Party for our London office with a wonderful attendance from our CEO Richard, members of staff, foster carers, looked after children, birth children and even some of the foster carer’s grandchildren!

It was a fantastic afternoon which was action packed with a lovely lunch and entertainment from a magician and some of our staff members and looked after children, before a visit from Santa who presented all of the children in attendance with some lovely gifts and vouchers. The party ended with lots of music and dancing and everyone seemed to be having a great time!

Thank you to everyone who attended the party and we look forward to seeing you all in the near future. Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2019!
