Core Assets Fostering go to Belfast Pride 2013

Archived: Posted July 9, 2013

Core Assets Fostering - NIOn our quest to recruit potential foster carers we certainly get about! On Saturday 6th July we attended the Pride event in Belfast, taking our information stand, a load of leaflets about fostering and one or two members of staff and we had a great time at this amazing event. Here’s a view of the day from a member of our team who was there:

“I’ve never been to Belfast Pride before and was pleasantly surprised by how interested people were in our stand. Was it the freebies, madness from the heat or our bright green t-shirts? Well, I actually think that people were truly interested in finding out about fostering a child.”

“We met so many interesting people; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and straight. We had a chat with them all. It was surprising to find out that so many people didn’t realise they could foster because of their sexual orientation or being transgender.”

“It was great to break down some of the myths and say ‘Yes you can’!”
