Lauren Burnett our Director and Founder of Luella Rockerfella is a huge advocate for Fostering and is also a foster carer.
" I had a very difficult teenage years and was placed in care for a period of time. I had older women who i was influenced by who tried to guide me to a better direction, these older girls meant the World to me. Especially one, Hayley, who I call my sister as the nurture and compassion she shown me was so important at that time in my life. I knew I wanted to be THAT person for another teenage girl...pay it forward. " Lauren said
"It has been a hugely cathartic experience for me to use my past and pain to help another. It helped during Covid and through personal issues as I knew I had younger influential eyes watching me so I knew I had to make the right moves so my foster teenager knew that there are healthy coping mechanisms to dealing with trauma." Lauren added
"Fostering has enriched my life and I see my foster teen develop and make better choices for her future it fills me with love and pride. She is my little sister."
