Hi, my name is Nana, I joined Welcome Foster Care as a Recruitment Administrator in October 2016.Nana - picture

I have had various retail and administrative roles over the years, and in particular spent over five years carrying out administrative, panel, and recruitment duties with an independent fostering agency. As such, I have considerable experience of working in the fostering sector, and look forward to using that experience in my work with Welcome Foster Care.


My experience of fostering

Since being approved in March 2016, I have had six foster children in my care from April 2016 to date. I have to say that I Nusret Bashirlove being a foster parent, and I love to help others by listening and supporting young children. So far I have attended all the training at Welcome Foster Care which I have found very helpful and informative. I have a great Supervising Social Worker; Rebecca Gill who is very supportive and always keeps me updated with everything. All foster children have different needs. I have spent a lot of time with the foster children taking them to and from school and contacts and also enjoying family days out. I get great satisfaction to see a child smile and to see how happy simple things can make a big difference in their lives. I would like in the future to also have experience with fostering younger children as I have so far only fostered children from 11 to 16 years old. Welcome Foster Care is a great team and I am proud to be a part of their team. I’m currently fostering a 14-year-old girl who has been placed with me since July 2016 and could be placed with me on a long-term basis. I am always ready for a challenge and never give up easily. I like to make children happy and with each child my aim is to ensure that their stay with me is comfortable and that they are looked after well. Welcome Foster Care is an asset to any foster child who comes under their care.

eid-image1Celebrating Eid at Welcome Foster Care!!

After a long period of fasting during Ramadan, it was time to celebrate the spectacular festival of Eid on 6th July 2016 with its array of gastronomical delights. To share the festive spirit, Welcome Foster Care distributed a selection of Asian sweets and Eid cards to all their Muslim foster carers. This was our agency’s gesture to signify our commitment to the core principles of acknowledging and celebrating cultural diversity and ensuring that religious and ethnic traditions are preserved and passed on to our foster children, foster carers and staff.  Our Supervising Social Workers always emphasis the need of respecting and promoting such ethnic practices so that our foster children’s cultural identity is well defined. As an organisation Welcome Foster Care have foster carers from all walks of life and faith that reflect our community, so Eid was celebrated with much fervour by all at Welcome Foster Care!!
