Recently Sara, Regional Director for Capstone (Midlands), had a long-awaited reunion with Flavia; who is a newly appointed member of our fostering panel here in the Midlands.
Many years ago, Sara was the supervising social worker for a foster family who accepted Flavia as part of their family when she was 15 years old.
As an adult, Flavia has gone on to work much of her career in children’s social care, making a difference to young people. She is now studying to qualify as a social worker and will be joining the Midlands team to complete her practice placement as a social work student in a few months’ time.
Sara said, “I am delighted and so proud to have played a small part in helping Flavia have a brighter future and meeting her now and having the privilege of witnessing what she has achieved, makes me realise how incredibly powerful fostering can be. Flavia is continuing the legacy by choosing a career that continues to help children and young people and that is amazing.”
This meeting is an inspiring example of how fostering is changing futures.
