Fostering stories

Amanda Connolly

Shortly after her approval to be a Hackney Foster Carer, Amanda shared her experience of the application process and what encouraged her to become a foster carer in the first place.

Brenda Campbell

As one of our longest serving foster carers, Brenda caught up with Hackney Today and shared how she went from nursing to fostering and why she has remained a foster carer for so long.

Many people worry about fostering when they have children of their own, but Hajra shares that it seemed very natural to them and now her adult children are part of her support network.

Nicola Hill

Nicola has been a hackney foster carer since October 2010. She has fostered teenagers, with her partner Laura.
