On Wednesday 17th July 2019, Sara, Ann Marie, James, Zara & Ally along with social workers Dan, Paula and Pamela all attended a carers lunch at the Tame Otter in Tamworth. The event was to celebrate some of our carer's 5th year anniversary of fostering with Capstone and their social workers across the East & some of the West Midlands.
4 families attended in total and enjoyed a 3-course lunch along with a small award ceremony.
The carers were given flowers, a certificate and an award for their achievement along with a thank you for their commitment to the children they have and have had in their care over the last 5 years.
Regional Director Sara said "We wanted to show our appreciation to our carers who have reached a milestone 5 years in their fostering journeys. It is important for them to know their efforts and contributions to the lives of our children and young people are appreciated and not overlooked. They support us to be able to achieve what we want to as an independent foster agency which is to build brighter futures and without them, we would not be able to do this".
The families enjoyed the day, gave thanks to Zara for organising and said they had enjoyed the gathering and their gifts & awards of appreciation. Over the next 12 months, additional families reaching this milestone will be celebrated and we look forward to seeing this.
