It’s the tragic side of what we do but the child law team at Bretherton Law witness the effects of child neglect and abuse on a daily basis and it’s rife, even in the leafy suburbs of Hertfordshire. Foster carers play a vital role in securing a safe and happy future for these children which is why today is dedicated to them. The purpose of Foster Carer Appreciation Day is to draw attention to the on-going need for more foster families to come forward, and to celebrate and thank existing foster carers. If you have ever thought about becoming a foster parent this video produced by Herts County Council, may just encourage you to turn that thought into a reality. Watch the video on our website:
