Linda enjoys supporting young parents to look after their children. She’s had several young mums in placement, and has supported them to learn life skills to maintain a household and establish routine for their little one.
Linda fosters alongside her husband Mike. They are currently fostering siblings and a parent and child placements. Linda and Mike have been fostering for 2 years. Their own children have grown up and fled the nest and they have a big house, with lots of bedrooms to support children in need of fostering.
They enjoy going to local parks, zoos, theme parks and support children to develop and nurture their own interests.
Mike is a teacher and works in a school that supports children with ADHD. This often comes handy with fostering, as Mike has the expertise to support children with tricky behaviours, and also has weekends and time off to match the routine of the children they support.
