Past News & Events > 3rd December 2013 - visit from Sue Andersen & Annie Simpson (Deputy Manager for the Milton Keynes  Foster & Adoption Team).  


Today Sue and Annie from the Foster and Adoption Team visited the group.  Sue has been to our meetings on a few occasions over the years and today she came with Annie, the Team’s Deputy Manager.

Annie is new to this role and she was sympathetic to a number of the group’s situations.  She told us a little bit about her background and her ‘hands on’ dealings with her sister in South Africa who was looking after her own niece.

Sue brought along a leaflet Becoming A Family And Friends Foster Carer - All You Need To Know. The group was asked earlier in the year for our thoughts on the draft leaflet and, after looking at the draft, the group had suggested ideas that we felt should be included or things that we would have liked to have seen included in the leaflet.  It was really good to see the finished article and that some of our suggestions were used.  Sue thanked the group for our professional input’

Members then had an opportunity to introduce themselves and their situation, and ask questions.

A really good and positive morning with lots of ideas for the future.

We look forward to seeing Sue and Annie in 2014.
