foster care


    This week is Tusla National Fostering Week, and the child & family agency are appealing for more people in Mayo to get involved in foster care.

    Across Co Mayo, over 100 foster carers open their home to children, and a coffee morning will take place in Lough Lannagh , Castlebar tomorrow morning to give more information to anyone interested in finding out about fostering in Mayo.

    Karen Hope, social work team leader with Tusla in Mayo, says they're looking for people from all walks of life and all backgrounds to consider getting involved in fostering children.
