“I would totally recommend Family Care. The important thing for us was the support. If a situation arose that I didn’t feel I was able to deal with, I knew I could ring at 5 o’clock tea time or 3 o’clock in the morning and there was somebody on the end of the phone…The clue is in the name, Family.”

Jen, Fostering since 2013
