Be-Longing, support available for foster carers and children they care for – online foster care event with special guest, Robin Findlay
30 March 2023
7:00pm – 8:30 pm
The event will start with a screening of our award-winning short film, Be-Longing. This powerful film tells the story of Khoji, a 9-year ‘looked after’ boy living within a foster family in London. This, we have found, is a great way to open up the director Q&A and discussion with our guests around foster care, the effects it has on young people in difficult circumstances, and how we can best support them throughout this process.
Robert Findlay, General Secretary, NUPFC will be discussing his work supporting foster carers and children they care for.
For many years, Robin arranged conferences and events around the world, he has a background in immigration law and is a former foster carer. Using his experience as a foster carer and other fields he founded the National Union of Professional Foster Carers to give carers the protection and support not provided elsewhere.
This event is ideal for (but not limited to!) people in the following roles:
- Those who are care experienced
- Those working in foster agencies, charities and NGOs
- Support workers
- Teachers/head teachers/designated teachers
- Social workers
- Foster carers
- Campaigners and those interested in making positive change in the care sector
