Beat Bullying’s Big March – 11th June

BigMMPUOrange Grove Fostercare was really proud to lend its name in support of Beat Bullying’s Big March on the 11th June, aimed to #deletecyberbullying across the whole of Europe. Amazingly, more than 33 countries took part, potentially reaching an audience of 38 million people.

It was featured across international media including the BBC (GB), VRT (BE), Prague Post (CZ), ITV (GB) and many more… and also raised the profile of their campaign video.

Terribly, a massive 1 in 3 young people will be the victim of cyber bullying and Beat Bullying do a fantastic job raising awareness. They also offer great support from trained mentors and counsellors to 11-17 year olds who are worried about bullying.

They are very helpful and make clear that there is no such thing as a silly question.

Ofsted Rates Orange Grove Fostercare Shropshire as Outstanding.

Orange Grove Fostercare, Shropshire branch, has been rated as Outstanding in a recent Ofsted inspection, an accolade which has delighted both the agency and their dedicated foster carers who are based all around Shropshire and Dudley.

Orange Grove Fostercare manages placements of children with compatible foster carers across the UK. Shropshire team manager, Craig Walton comments, “The team is absolutely delighted as it is testament to their hard work but the biggest honour needs to go to our foster carers, especially those based in Telford, Wrekin, Shrewbury and Dudley. These people have really stepped up to the fostering challenge with many realising they can make a huge difference to a child’s life. For me, our Ofsted statement “Children and Young People are making outstanding personal progress in all aspects in their development and especially with regard to their heath and education”, speaks volumes of the dedication the Orange Grove foster carers give.”

The report also points out that, “Children and Young People receive an outstanding level of individualised care that meets their social, economical, psychological and physical needs.”

Craig continues, “Shropshire team is very proud today and it has made us even more determined to recruit more foster carers to help support some of the 8000 shortage of placements in the UK.
