Meet foster carer Carrie at our drop-in event

Carrie Haggarty fostering 3

Every 20 minutes a child in the United Kingdom comes into the care system and needs a foster family. Thank goodness for people like Carrie Haggarty and her husband David.

Come for an informal chat

To highlight Foster Care Fortnight, which starts on Monday May 13, and to encourage anyone thinking about a career as a carer to come along to a drop-in event on Thursday 16 May between 4pm and 8pm in a private room at Lasswade Library, we caught up with Carrie in the family home.

Thoroughly recommend fostering

David and Carrie have four children, one of whom is grown up, between them. Carrie says: “We’ve been fostering now for three years and we’d really recommend it. I think fostering is great, in fact I tell everyone to do it.”

Carrie, who is supported by the family placement team and offered regular training, will be at the drop in event on Thursday 16 May.
