Read All About It!

Core Assets Fostering - North EastOn 23rd April Core Assets Fostering held its first book club for carers.

Carers look forward to meeting again to discuss the next book (‘Cries Unheard’ by Gitta Sereny) on 11th June.

To coincide with the launch of the book club, the North East office is holding a photographic competition called ‘catch your carer reading’ – with the aim of getting young people to snap their carer reading in unusual places or when they least expect it. The closing date for sending in pictures is 8th July. There’s a prize for the best one.
