News | Tell Your MP Your Hopes and Dreams for 2016 The Team at The Who Cares? Trust are looking to find out what our foster children and looking forward to in 2016 to share with their local MP. News | The Who Cares? Trust Thanks Our Foster Carers. We would like to thank all our foster carers who took the time to fill in our carer feedback surveys. For every feedback survey that was completed and returned to us we donated £1 to The Who Cares? Trust. In total we received 391 surveys back so £391 has been donated to The Who Cares? Trust. The Who Cares? Trust supports and empowers children in care and young care leavers through their engagement programme, including running life skills workshops for young care leavers, organising work experience and providing one-to-one support and guidance to young people in the programme. Well done to our foster carer and thank you for your feedback. News | Fostering Solutions Carer Shortlisted For Local Carer Award We are proud to announce that our foster carer Linda Tellwright, from Stoke, has been nominated for an Adult Carer Heroes Award by The Stoke Sentinel for her fantastic services to fostering. Linda has been a foster carer with Fostering Solutions for a number and years and will be attending the black tie awards ceremony on September 24 to find out if she has won. Linda said: “I was so surprised to be nominated. A lot of people do great things every day, like caring for ill people or children in hospitals, so I didn’t expect it – but it’s lovely to be nominated. “I’m taking my three daughters with me on the night, because without their help and support I wouldn’t be the carer I am today. All the family has been involved with my fostering journey, my grandchildren have always got on well with the foster children, especially my foster son now. Their support deserves some recognition too. “We’re really excited to attend the awards dinner. I’m not expecting to win I’m just grateful to be involved as it’s been such a lovely experience.” We wish Linda the best of luck!
