Ella helps charity’s 1200 Voices sing out for more foster carers

Foster Care Fortnight is here and we’ve linked up with Britain’s Got Talent star Ella Shaw to highlight the need for more than 1200 extra foster carers in the region. Ella, who reached the semi-finals of the TV talent competition in 2015, joined our foster children, staff and foster carers to record 1200 Voices, an album of songs we hope will encourage people in the North West to consider fostering.

More foster carers are needed in the North West than in any other part of England, with particular need in Greater Manchester where more than 350 extra foster care places are required, and Lancashire, where 220 more carers are needed. Singer songwriter Ella lent her vocals to a recording of ‘We Are The Voice’, a song written and performed by foster care children especially for the album. And CANW’s kids made a huge impression on Ella with their song writing and performing talents: “When I heard the song they’d written I was really impressed – I know myself that song writing’s not easy, but I was blown away by what they’d come up with. It was a real privilege to work with them.”1200 Voices also features the singing talents of pupils from Shadsworth Infants and Junior School, St Leonards C of E School in Langho, Blackburn Central High School and St Christopher’s C of E High School in Accrington, who were keen to add their voices to the call for more foster carers.
