Mark, 51, was brought up in Herefordshire and began his career in residential care in 2000. He joined the foster care sector in 2002.
“The challenge of this job is to support our foster carers and to grow the carer group. It involves working closely with the local authorities in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire,” said Mark.
“Community Foster Care’s unique selling point is that we are a charity. Our standards of training and levels of support are also exceptional.”
Rebekah Pearson, Chief Executive of Community Foster Care, based in Staunton, welcomed Mark to the team. “As the number of cared-for children keeps rising, there can be no let-up in our search for foster carers. It can be a hugely rewarding role, and one which I’m sure Mark will help us to promote.”
