Eleven round the dinner table - fond memories for Sue Oliver, foster carer and councillor

Sue.jpgDuring Foster Care Fortnight, Councillor Sue Oliver recalled her fond memories of being a foster carer. She wanted to get the message out that it is ordinary people who carry out the extraordinary role of fostering.

Cllr Sue Oliver is the executive member for children’s social care at Bedford Borough Council. She and her husband, Ray, took on their first foster placement in 1983 just three months after having their first child. A year later, they took on another teenager, and then another, and another and another.

Sue said, "With four children of our own, there would be 11 of us sitting around the dining table on a Sunday and the teenagers would take it in turns to cook and then wash-up. This was a highlight for us as a family and formed many fond memories. We were one big, happy family."

If you are interested in becoming a foster carer, and would like more information, contact Bedford Borough Council’s Fostering team on 01234 718718.
