Family Camps for foster families “Together is Better”

140 children and adults from 18 foster families came together for our two four-day Family Camps. There were specialised activities for every age group, bringing both learning and development and lots of fun! While staff and volunteers engaged the children with drama, health and safety and games, parents learned skills they need for fostering from Child Psychologists.
