Ealing positively welcomes gay and lesbian foster carers

During Fostercare Fortnight, Ealing Council are launching the Pink Campaign. The campaign targets members of the gay and lesbian prospective foster carers.

The campaign comes as a result of a tremendous amount of work and consultation across a number of organisations, groups and individuals in the gay and lesbian community. The campaign has so far it has been very well received.

The council are actively developing their services to welcome to the gay community. Their aim is to recruit as widely as possible so they have a diverse range of foster carers to meet the needs of all the children and young people in their care.

Ealing are keen to get the message across to the communities that what’s important is what families can offer to a child or sibling group. With this in mind the council are launching their ‘Pink Campaign’ at a special event for members of of the gay and lesbian community at Ealing Town Hall at 6.30pm on Tuesday 25th May 2010. There will be drinks and nibbles, followed by a presentation, open panel and networking. Guests will have the opportunity to meet social workers and share in the experiencethe of other carers.

The event is also open to members of the gay and lesbian community who may be interested in adoption.
