Welcome to our new blog! We will be updating the blog on a regular basis to keep you up to date with news and events at Safehouses Fostering.
As it is the Summer holidays, we have been very busy running fun activities for the children and young people. Our independence sessions were extremely interesting, with lots of great input from our young people. We discussed leaving care, further education, careers, and potential obstacles to achieving great outcomes. We ended the week with a trip to Manchester, where the young people had the opportunity to travel there independently and enjoy a delicious pizza together.
We also had lots of fun with the younger children last week. Thank you to Allen, Rachel and John for a fantastic day at ‘Be More Outdoors’ in Slaithwaite. The children really enjoyed making outdoor dens, toasting marshmallows on the camp fire and making wooden birds and nests.
Thank you to all the young people, foster carers and Safehouses staff who attended and contributed to these events. We hope you enjoyed yourselves!
Here are some other activity dates for your diary this Summer:
