Imagine the wonder in a child’s face as they enter the Swansea.com stadium for the first time or take in the expanse and glory of the perfectly manicured pitch?
The buzz as everyone settles. The excitement as the players run on.
It’s a feeling we don’t forget as adults. And neither do kids.
That’s why we’re determined to make sure more children across the harder to reach pockets of our communities get the chance to experience it.
It’s why we’ve partnered with Foster Wales. To give foster children the opportunity to attend matches they might not otherwise access and at the same time shine a big, bright, shiny spotlight on the crucial work foster carers are doing in our local communities today.
Supporting them in their quest to find more, much-needed carers from differing backgrounds. As their website says, no two children are the same, and neither is the foster care they need.
A national network of 22 Welsh Local Authority fostering services, Foster Wales work with a huge diversity of foster carers, each one with a different set of skills. Because different children need different things. From an overnight stay to something more long-term.
No matter who you are, fostering is the chance to make a real difference to children in your local community.
