Real stories

Let us introduce you to some of the wonderful people who decided to foster with our partners across the North East. Here they kindly share their own experiences of fostering, talk about the children they have looked after over the years and offer advice on what others considering fostering may want to know.

Kath and Alan's story

After 16 years, Kath and her husband, Alan, haven't lost any of the motivation or drive for their roles as foster carers, which at first seem a world away from their previous careers in law and the RAF. Speaking to Kath about her passion for fostering, it's clear how she's inspired others around her to try fostering for themselves.

Joanne's story

Joanne was always drawn to fostering but as a young married mum-of-two aged just 22, she thought fostering would be something her and her husband would do in the future.

Paula, Olivia and Harry's story

In this heart-warming story we meet long-term foster carer Paula alongside brother and sister Harry and Olivia.
