Fostering film scoops two national awards

by Jonathan Kearney

A film produced by councils in the UK, including Knowsley, Liverpool and Warrington, has won the Best Collaboration and Best Creative Communications categories at the comms2point0 UnAwards which recognises excellence in public sector communications.

The “Any of us can foster” film raises awareness of fostering and highlights that we all have the potential to make a difference to a child’s life.

“Any of us”, looks at three very different people – Ayesha, Neil and Marsha – who each show in their own way, how they have nurturing personalities, from going to the aid of a pedestrian after an accident, to calming down an aggressive situation.

The film shows three separate individuals in very different scenarios, but highlights their natural caring instinct which is fundamental to being a foster carer.

These stories are all interwoven with that of a young foster child, Chloe, as we get an insight into her journey into fostering.

Jonathan Jones, Executive Director for Children’s Services, said: “I’m delighted that the “Any of us can foster” film has been nationally recognised. It’s so important that we find homes for our vulnerable children, so we’re delighted to be working together with other local authorities across the UK in funding this film and other similar initiatives so we can have a bigger impact when raising awareness.”

Foster carers make a significant difference in the lives of fostered children and young people, helping them to flourish and achieve their full potential.
