One of our fantastic foster carers had the idea to use shoes to demonstrate the high number of children in care in the county.
Paul and his wife have fostered over 25 children during their nine years as foster carers, and throughout their journey they have collected a lot of shoes for the children they have cared for.
Paul began collecting shoes from other foster carers made a huge banner to display all the shoes with the number 1000.
This will be displayed at events across the county where foster carers will share their experiences, and people wanting to know more can get all their questions answered from our friendly fostering team.
Throughout the campaign we will be sharing stories from foster carers and children and young people in care through social media, radio and online.
