National Volunteer Week

15th of May


Today at Westcare we celebrated the hard work, generosity and selflessness of our Foster Carers.

Over 50 Carers from Melton Foster Care, Adolescent Home Based Care and staff joined for breakfast in Melton as part of National Volunteer Week. 

Some of the Carers also brought in the children they are currently Fostering. 

Babies lit up the room with smiles and toddlers happily played games as the adults shared stories over coffees, cakes and bacon and eggs.

One toddler recognised a baby she was in care with before she moved into her new placement & immediately embraced him.

Westcare's Gail Walton & Jill Wain handed out certificates to Carers in recognition for their efforts.

Westcare currently has 54 active Foster Carers who look after some of the West's most vulnerable young children.
