The former youth worker, who has fostered 27 children for the London borough of Tower Hamlets over the past 14 years, was recently given the Fostering Network’s president’s award for her contribution to care. “I love what I do,” she said. “I came into it with my eyes open. But I don’t think most people realise how hard foster carers work for the allowance we receive.”
