The Wyvern Theatre is encouraging more people in Swindon to consider becoming a foster carer.

The theatre has sent out a dedicated email to their customers, handed out leaflets at pantomime performances and shared posts on social support Swindon Borough Council’s campaign to recruit more foster carers.

Laura James, sales and marketing manager for the Wyvern Theatre, said: “It is our pleasure to be working alongside the council’s fostering team and to offer support in any way that we can.

“It is so important to us to get involved in community projects and the work that the council is doing to promote fostering and to find more local foster carers is vital.

“We are doing what we can to get the word out to our audiences and also to spread some joy to carers and the children during the panto season.”

Councillor Mary Martin, cabinet member for children’s services and school attainment, said: “I’d like to thank the Wyvern Theatre for all of their support in spreading the word about our campaign and encouraging people who are interested in fostering to find out more.

“Every child and young person in Swindon deserves to be part of a loving and stable family and the aim of our recruitment drive is to ensure that this is the case.”
