“After working for Ladbrokes for years, I wanted a change in career. Jim and I had thought about fostering for a while, he was fostered as a child too, so he wanted to help children in a similar position to his. Our family and friends were really supportive of our decision to foster, offering help when needed.
Giving the children that security and making them feel safe brings such a warm feeling. Seeing them happy is very rewarding. It’s lovely to be able to give a young person the ability to look after themselves, be independent in the future and steer them in the right direction.
