FCA Car Rally Arrives in Liverpool

Archived: Posted May 16, 2014

Liverpool 2The FCA Foster Care Fortnight roadshow headed to Liverpool on day three of the ten day tour of the UK.

The Fiat 500s rode into the historic Albert Docks as part of the FCA car rally to help boost the profile of fostering during Foster Care Fortnight.

A big aim of this year’s Foster Care Fortnight is to dispel myths about the ‘typical’ foster carer, as FCA welcomes carers from a wide variety of backgrounds.

FCA North West registered manager in Colette Abbiss,  said she hoped that this year’s Foster Care Fortnight campaign would tackle misconceptions people may have about the kind of people who can foster.

She said: “Foster carers come from all walks of life and have all kinds of transferable skills. From pilots and police officers to barristers and bricklayers, you could provide the safety and stability a young person desperately needs to thrive.

“Many people are too quick to focus on why they can’t foster when they should be thinking about why they can foster.”
