“Over 40 years ago, I was a fostered child with Medway and look at me now. I had a team behind me who have built me into the resilient person I am today. That is why I now foster for Medway Council. I trust that the children are safe and secure. From experience, I know you cannot get that everywhere. No feeling in this world beats a young person you’ve helped to shape turn out to be the remarkable person they’ve become today.”
