South Eastern Trust Fostering Achievement Awards28th February 2022
The South Eastern Trust, in partnership with the Fostering Network, was delighted to celebrate our Fostering Achievement Awards in Belfast on Saturday 26 February 2022.
These awards are delivered through the Fostering Attainment and Achievement service and are given to children and young people in foster care or kinship foster care who are in at least Primary 4 or above. The awards recognise the children’s educational accomplishments over the past year, for example academic, sport or musical achievements.
40 awards were presented to our children and young people across the South Eastern Trust.
One foster parent commented, “We are so proud of the child in our care. He has achieved so much despite experiencing a number of difficulties. It is lovely to see him making such good progress and receiving an award has made us feel that what we are doing is so worthwhile. We also really value the support that we have received that helps us to support him.”
The Director of Children’s Services in the Trust said, “It was a wonderful event, really celebrating the children in our care and all that they have achieved. We would like to thank our foster carers and colleagues who continue to provide the best possible care and support to our children and young people to help them win these awards and meet their full potential each and every day.”
