Local fostering agency shares Christmas moments to inspire others to consider fostering this Winter

A LOCAL fostering agency, Fosterplus, is sharing magical moments from foster parents to inspire more people to help children and young people find a positive and secure home next year.

Across England and Scotland, Fosterplus, an independent fostering agency based in the UK, will be providing support and care to over 200 children and young people this Winter.

Foster parents play a vital role in looking after some of society’s most vulnerable children and young people and during a time of togetherness, Fosterplus is calling on potential foster parents in the nearby area to open up their homes to make a magical difference.

One foster parent who has been with the Fosterplus family for 15 years said: “Taking an 8 year old who was a ‘non believer’ to Lapland for the day to meet the real Father Christmas brought a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat.

“It truly was magical and he certainly left as a believer.

“We have done it a few times now over the years, but it is so heartwarming knowing these memories will last a lifetime.”

In terms of advice, one foster parent said: “Slow down and just enjoy the simpler things with the children.

“Watch a kids Christmas movie on the sofa with them, sing along with Christmas songs, it will fill your cup up.”
