Foster Care Week was held recently and to celebrate, UPA Youth Care were part of a team that organised a Family Fun Day at the Alstonville Leisure Centre.
During Foster Care Week, five foster care agencies, including Family and Community Services worked together to produce a great day full of activities including jumping castles, live performances, a photo booth, hip hop workshops, a reptile display and arts and crafts to name a few.
A special art project facilitated by our carer and mentor Karma Barnes was the highlight. Everyone who attended on the day were asked to paint a heart and all the hearts were glued to five big hearts that are now displayed in each of the five agencies.
Attendees also had the chance to participate in this mural creation (see images) which turned out very well indeed!
Youth Care UPA were so happy to be a part of this very special day, a big thank you to our wonderful carers for the incredible work they do.
