Lorraine was fostered at 18 months old and is giving her support to some of the country’s most vulnerable children. She will use her personal experiences to champion fostering and encourage more people to open up their homes to a child in need of love and support. She said: “I’m extremely honoured to be invited to be the government’s Fostering Ambassador and very much look forward to working with the minister and his team in supporting their efforts to ensure fostered children and young adults receive the best care possible.”
This announcement is the latest step in the government’s reforms to overhaul adoption and fostering and improve support on offer through every step of the adoption and fostering journey.
