On Thursday 22nd August, our North Devon Carers and their children enjoyed a lovely picnic and play at Braunton Burrows.
The Burrows are like a desert to play in, with enormous sand dunes that our youngest participant (aged 4) was kindly helped to scale by the other children. The eldest (aged 16) was able to show us what a helpful, caring and patient person he has grown into, which was lovely to see.
Anna, our Placement Stability Practitioner commented “The event was fantastic because we were able to get together children and families that have supported each other through respite and regularly get the children together to support contact arrangements. The children made new friends and enjoyed charging around in the wide open space, showing how their confidence continues to grow and how the wonderful care they are receiving is helping them to shine.
It was also great to spend the day with our North Devon carers who have all played an important part in keeping sibling groups close together, sharing the joy in seeing the children’s lives become more settled.”
