This year the Excellence in Foster Care Awards were set to be held on Friday 29 March at Government House, hosted by The Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy, GNZM, QSO Governor-General of New Zealand. Due to the National remembrance service for victims of the Christchurch mosque attack being held last Friday the Governor-General was unable to host the awards at Government House. Under such circumstances we decided it would not be appropriate to undertake any celebration. The Excellence in Foster Care Awards will now be presented at our conference in October.
We hope to share more about these incredible people throughout the year.
Nominations for 2020 will open in October, 2019. For further information please contact National Office on 0800 693 323. Alternatively, send an email to Bianca at here.
Since 2017, Fostering Kids NZ have been celebrating the incredible work of caregivers by recognising ten extraordinary caregivers/caregiver couples by holding the Excellence in Foster Care Awards. The awards are now run in partnership with Oranga Tamariki – Ministry for Children. Together, we have now successfully hosted the awards for 7 years.
