Congratulations to Sally and Reece McChlery

2017 Excellence in Foster Care Award recipients

Sally and Reece have welcomed children of all ages into their family and busy household for 13 years. Well known and respected in the Queenstown Lakes community, their story was recently featured here.

Always there when needed – they’ve often responded at very short notice to take children in, no matter what their own circumstances.

Their warm and non-judgemental approach helps them quickly establish rapport with each child or young person. They really focus on each child’s strengths, building their self-esteem and confidence.

Supporting each child to maintain regular contact with their family is also a priority for Sally and Reece. In Sally’s words, “It is a privilege to have children in my home that I can support and help on their journey to a stable and well-rounded life.”
