This week we chat to our carers Rob and Mandy Goddard who have been fostering with us at Brighton and Hove for over 23 years and have fostered more than 65 young people. They were awarded an MBE for their incredible service to fostering in 2015.
As a ‘Barnardos Boy’, Rob was fostered himself in Whitehawk and then stayed with one set of foster parents for his entire time in care. He credits his positive experience in care as the reason that he wanted to give something back and become a foster carer himself.
So has it sunk it that you have an MBE?!
