Ever fancied opening your heart and home to a kid in need? Buckle up because we're about to embark on a soul-stirring adventure into the world of UK fostering with the amazing Caroline Fielder-Shattell and Rachael Tate!

Forget the rose-tinted glasses - these ladies peel back the layers on what it really means to be a foster carer. No sugarcoating, just raw honesty about the challenges, the joys, and the life-changing journey for both you and the children.

Ready to smash the myths holding you back? We'll crack open the whole truth about stability, education, and the careful matching process to ensure every child lands in the perfect home. Plus, we'll shine a spotlight on the National Fostering Group - your cheerleaders every step of the way!

Emotional rewards? Tick. Practical support? Double tick! We'll dive into the nitty-gritty of compensation and the incredible impact you can make on a young life. You'll be amazed at the difference you can bring, even with a busy mum-life juggling act.

Career-queen and fostering dream team? Not a pipe dream! We'll explore the future of fostering friendly workplaces fueled by legislation like the Employment Relations Flexible Working Bill. Imagine a world where fostering is the norm, not the exception! We'll show you how to navigate supportive environments and empower your own workplace to join the movement.

Join us as we celebrate courageous stories, explore innovative pathways, and foster hope for the next generation. This is your chance to be a hero - and it all starts with one brave step.
