Between them, these companies have employed thousands of individuals in the UK and across the world. “I felt the time was right to build on the skills and expertise we had already developed with Key Assets, FosterTalk and other capacity building projects, to support and enable more communities around the world to promote and deliver family-based care for the most vulnerable and displaced children.”
