The festive classic, 12 days of Christmas has a new spin on it as Doncaster Children’s Services Trust Fostering sings to highlight the need for at least 30 more foster carers in 2018.
Trust Fostering and adoption teams and Mockingbird hub carer, have stepped out of their comfort zones to spread the word about the Trust Fostering services’ need for at least 30 new foster carers in 2018.
A group of enthusiastic foster carers have set up shop in Frenchgate this week to encourage potential new carers to take up the role.
The carers who foster for Trust Fostering – the fostering service run by Doncaster Children’s Services Trust – have volunteered their time to promote fostering and talk to the public about the benefits of being a part of the Trust’s fostering family.
