The dedication of Camden’s foster carers has been given special recognition at the foster carers awards event held on 17 May 2013.
Awards were presented by BAFTA-winning actress Imelda Staunton - pictured with Camden foster carers. Imelda attended the annual event to recognise and reward the borough’s foster carers for long service of five, ten, fifteen and twenty years.
The gathering was a great opportunity for Camden to celebrate local foster carers’ hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to caring for children. The event also highlighted the urgent need for more foster carers to come forward to offer children a supportive family home.
Imelda Staunton said: “Looking after children takes real energy and a very warm heart. I am very impressed by the commitment and hard work of Camden foster carers and how many children and young people will have benefited from their kindness.”
The event was part of national Foster Care Fortnight.
