Fostering good food event
The Bexley Fostering Team was a part of the 'Good Food Bexley' event that took place at the Broadway on 30 August

The event aimed to make Bexley a place for healthy eating, sustainable living and community development. The Bexley Fostering Team was present at the event to provide information about Fostering to people across various age groups and diverse backgrounds as well as inform people of the new schemes in place for Bexley's children and young people.

There were games and activities for children that promoted healthy living and eating. While the games kept the children and young people occupied, parents and families had a chance to have a conversation with our social workers and gather information.

The event helped to spread the word about fostering in the community, with people showing an interest in learning more about fostering with Bexley and learning more about the host and support scheme in Bexley. This resulted in a number of enquiries, which may develop into future applicants and potential foster carers.
