FCA Cars in MiddlesbroughIt was a spectacular sight as the 10 flashy FCA Fiat 500s took over Centre Square in Middlesbrough on Tuesday 13th May to boost the profile of fostering during Foster Care Fortnight 2014.

Staff and carers from FCA were at Centre Square in Middlesbrough to answer questions from the public about a rewarding career in fostering and to offer advice and guidance about taking the next step.

FCA North East area director Mick Austin said: “We had a great time in Middlesbrough speaking to the public about what a fantastically rewarding career fostering can be.

“Hopefully we have inspired people in Teesside to seriously consider becoming a foster carer and making a massive difference to the lives of young people in their area.”

Mick added: “Foster carers come from all walks of life and have all kinds of transferable skills. From farmers and firemen to teachers and tanker drivers, 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.”
