At Team Fostering, we organise annual holidays across the North East, Yorkshire and East Midlands. Some of these took place last month and we've received some fantastic feedback...
The annual holidays are ran to bring all children and foster carers together for a highly enjoyable week. They're a great opportunity for carers to get to know other carers, and more importantly for children and young people to make new friends and socialise. We work hard to ensure that there are lots of things to do, and to offer the opportunity for children and young people to try out new things. This is just part of the Education and Support Service that we offer to all foster carers and looked after children with Team.
During May half term, those in our North East areas enjoyed a trip to Flamingo Land, while those in our Yorkshire and East Midlands areas visited Cumbria for a jam-packed holiday including horse riding and a trip to Maze Farm Park.
We're thrilled with some of the feedback we've received so far. Here are some highlights:
"The meet and great icebreaker game worked well, and forced us out of our comfort zones!"
"A well organised holiday with great communication and welcome packs"
"The whole trip was thoroughly enjoyable. Was great to get to know the other carers and children!"
"I didn't want to go to sleep [on the last night] as I knew the holiday would be over when I woke up"
