On Monday 8thApril 2019, Children First Fostering Agency celebrated its 20thAnniversary. In the past 20 years Children First have found 182 foster families and helped over 875 children. There is currently a shortage of 8,000 foster families in the UK and this day was therefore of significance. Children First had the opportunity to showcase the work the agency has achieved to date. The celebration took place at the Basildon office to celebrate and included staff, foster carers and children past and present as well as members of the public and Basildon’s Deputy Mayor, Councillor Danny Lawrence.

The day was a huge success. Registered Manager, Zazie Chesters gave recognition to the staff and carers who have been with the Agency for over 15 years, some of who are now in their 20thyear. Guests enjoyed an afternoon tea and watched a video montage of the agency’s highlights from the last 20 years. Some of the foster carers that attended brought along the children that are in their care as well as their own birth children. A wonderful afternoon was had by all!
