Surrey County Council has received the Fostering Friendly Employer of the Year Award at The Fostering Network’s Fostering Excellence Awards.
Linda Kemeny, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools, Skills and Educational Achievement said: “We’re delighted to receive national recognition for the work we’ve done to support staff who give a loving home to vulnerable children.
“We’re proud to give our staff extra support to undertake this important role and, with more foster carers always needed, would urge other employers in Surrey and across the country to follow our lead and help staff combine their work and family responsibilities.”
