Paddy’s Blog | Week 12

24/02/15 | By Paddy...

"My first day back after two weeks off on holiday in sunny Spain and I had a lot of work to be getting on with - I couldn't wait to get stuck back in! Janine and I had a meeting to make an action plan for my first week back. I also have NVQ work to do and I have a telephone assessment on Thursday. I have organised to meet with Lee Mcdermid who runs CiCC in Essex - David, our CiCC Chair will meet him with me to talk about what we do and how we differ.

David and I are also in the process of writing a letter to all foster carers saying why it is important they complete Foster Care Packs. We are writing this letter on behalf of all looked after children and for those who are coming into care.

The Challengers open day took place this week. I feel that it went really well and we had lots people there. It was great to see new people come along and to see that they are having a great time. It was really good getting everyone involved and seeing them enjoying their self. One foster carers said "I wish I could come to this group - it's great". It was good to see young people making new friends and even seeing old ones."
