October is Black History Month, and at Affinity Fostering, we are supporting it by recognising and celebrating racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds of children and adults.
We are running an online workshop day for our foster carers and staff, on 19th October 2022, where attendees can share and understand the experiences of foster carers who have cared for children from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds to their own, listen to poetry and stories from those who support the wellbeing of others, and hear from black educators working in schools.
We are delighted to be joined on the day by our keynote speaker, Careeta Robert-Green, who, through her own established business, works with hundreds of entrepreneurs from around the world to step into their own power.
We will also be joined by:
Paula Perry, founder of YOU4US
Theo Spalding-McIntosh, Head of Biology at a secondary school in East London
Novena-Chanel Davies, registered Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Uzoamaka Okafor, a performance poet and storyteller
Michael Elliot, a learning mentor in a secondary school in London
Marique Daughtery-Burke, Assistant Principal at a West London academy trust
Nicole Daly, a mentor/life coach for self-awareness and personal development
The event will be facilitated by John Terry, who will be sharing details about the origins of Black History celebrations.
We are looking forward to being joined by many Affinity foster carers and staff as we work together to get to a better tomorrow.
