Our alternative advent calendar celebrates the people or teams who have inspired us this year
Steve’s role in driving the development of the fostering service in Norfolk and his years of service to children and young people make him one of IMPOWER’s heroes of Christmas this year. Over the summer, Steve co-chaired a group of Norfolk County Council staff and carers who developed new ways of attracting and recruiting high quality foster carers, using a values-based approach. Drawing on his 13 years of experience as a foster carer, Steve brought incredible insight, energy and ideas to the table. He has continued to play a lead role in this endeavour, working with fostering staff and carers to plan and deliver targeted foster recruitment campaigns across Norfolk.
