Our very own Zoe, Fostering Network’s Young Ambassador, and our fabulous Foster Parent Lynnette, have met with the Duchess of Cambridge today at a tea party hosted by the Fostering Network.
The Duchess met with foster parents, social workers, and care leavers to discuss the role of fostering and the need for more foster parents; hearing stories of those who have experienced fostering first hand.
Zoe later presented Kate wih a memory box which contained a book of stories and poems by children brought up in care, called 'Growing up in our House', and individual stories by other youngsters from foster homes.
“At By the Bridge we are bursting with pride for Zoe and her achievements, her role as Ambassador at Fostering Network and the commitment she continues to give to fostering despite being so busy with her studies. We are also very proud of Lynnette and her husband Tony who are truly excellent foster parents ” Nicola Tunbridge, Managing Director at By the Bridge.
