Excellence In Foster Care Awards 2022

This afternoon, Dame Cindy and Dr Davies welcomed the recipients of the Caring Families Aotearoa Excellence in Foster Care Awards. Each recipient has gone above and beyond in their vital roles as foster carers, taking in at-risk young people and providing them with a nurturing, secure environment to grow up in. The recipients’ stories are truly inspirational, demonstrating the dedication, love and support they bring to the young children in their care. The reception also featured an amazing performance by Te Aro Kapa Haka.
