Foster and Kinship Care Week 2019
At Life Without Barriers we are celebrating Foster and Kinship Care Week (8th - 14th September) to acknowledge and thank the thousands of foster and kinship carers who provide safe and supportive homes for children and young people in out-of-home-care.
Our carers are extraordinary people, who embrace children with continuous love, understanding and encouragement. We believe that all children should be placed within a family, and we feel privileged to support such resilient and child focused foster and kinship care families. We have a number of events coming up to celebrate our carers. These include:
