A Gloucestershire teenager has won a prestigious fostering award.
Rebecca Greenough has received a Fostering Excellence Award at The Fostering Network’s annual awards ceremony on Thursday, November 10.
Rebecca has demonstrated how much the birth children of foster carers can contribute to fostering.
She was nominated by her mother Jacqueline, who has been fostering with Gloucestershire County Council for the last six years.
Rebecca recently started a degree in medicine.
Rebecca said: “Being part of a fostering family has helped me to fully appreciate the pressures on young people now.”
