Fostering Change Podcast: Harvey Gallagher- Campaigning for youth in foster care and foster agencies Fostering Change

    • Non-Profit

In this week’s episode of Fostering Change, Rob Scheer talks with Harvey Gallagher, Chief Executive, Nationwide Association of Fostering . Harvey began his career volunteering to support disadvantaged children. He has worked for local authorities and national charities in the UK. He holds an MBA, is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, charity trustee, volunteer and chair of school governors. He comes from a care-experienced family, is a father of five, grandfather, runner, cyclist, vegan and Newcastle United supporter!
Story Key Notes:
🖐️ Foster care works really well for most children most of the time
🖐️ Administrative chaos in the care system leading to children feeling they
don’t have a voice
🖐️ Too few options to find the right foster career for each child - a lack of
‘sufficiency’ and too little time
