The Faculty of Education is pleased to present a complementary speaker series open to the general public
to share research being conducted, and facilitate discussion around important topics in education.

Western Education professor Alan Leschied, along with Dr. Alan Leschied, Professor, Faculty of Education;
Patti Forrington (Supervisor for Recruitment, Training & Homestudy) and Paula Szabo (RecruitmentWorker, London and Middlesex Children’s Aid Society Worker) from London and Middlesex Children’s Aid Society present "On the Front Line of Foster Care."

Free Parking Will be Available.

Ensuring that every child is safe and cared for has never been more paramount, especially for those who suffer violence or neglect that requires the community to provide alternate living accommodations through foster care. Yet, we now live in a time when many of our communities no longer can guarantee that such resources will be available. This presentation will focus on who and why do people foster? How were they recruited? Why do foster parents consider leaving? These questions will be addressed through research, as well as through the lived experiences of those who are on the front line of recruiting, retaining and providing foster care on a daily basis.
