You may have already seen the headlines, read the news, and bought the t-shirt, but I thought I'd post a quick note about the recent leak of Gmail account details. Here's one such headline and article about the leak from the Daily Dot:

Our new edition of The Skills to Foster has been available for sale now for over two months. I’ve been talking with staff at fostering services to find out what they think of this new and rewritten edition. Read on to find out what Joan Frew from North Ayrshire Council thinks about The Skills to Foster- third edition 2014.

Good morning everyone. There's a chill in the air and school has started once more - autumn is definately on it's way. We hope back to school hasn't been too much of a culture shock for everyone involved and if school doesn't start again until Monday where you are that the last week of family freedom has been fun!

These are the conversations and discussions that have got you talking in the past two weeks.


Hello, and welcome to this fortnight's community round-up! Before I get started - are you in Wales? If so, there are six new member-only training courses ready for you to book. Take a look at our upcoming events page for more information. And now, back to our main event:

Next month sees one of the greatest migrations of young people across the UK as hundreds of thousands leave home to begin their university education. Empty nest syndrome is well documented, and many foster carers reference a quiet home, missing the hubbub of young people and, genuine quote, "someone to make me a nice cup of tea" as a reason to consider fostering! 

The Fostering Network’s Sons & Daughters campaign coordinator Catherine Holland has been speaking to Gemma from Stockton Borough Council about their participation in last year’s campaign.​

Hello there! I can only apologise for the lateness - we've been awfully busy, you see. I'll start with a couple of announcements from us:


No summer is complete without at least a couple of picnics outside but sometimes it’s difficult to think what to include. I had to give the matter a lot of thought last year for the book I was asked to write - Happy Mealtimes For Kids. Here are a few suggestions, some old favourites and some new. I hope you find them useful.

I feel a touch bereft this morning. While I know a number of you will be grateful for TV returning to relative normal, for me, the summer of sport so far has been incredible. Wimbledon and the British Grand Prix have come as standard, but this has of course been a football World Cup year. We’ve also had the Grand Départ from Yorkshire for the Tour de France, which was breathtaking. There is the small matter of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow so all is not completely lost.

Good afternoon everyone! We hope you're enjoying the sun where you are - whether that's in the garden with an ice lolly or preparing for the end of the school term before going away on holiday. A wide range of topics up for discussion on the community recently, here's just a few of the ones that have got you talking.
