Stockton Foster Carer Maria Catterick wins Big Society Award

Foster carer Maria Catterick, who's cared for 26 children over 9 years in Stockton, is the latest Prime Minister’s Big Society Award winner.

Maria Catterick has been recognised for her dedicated and selfless support to young people, and for the individual attention and love that she shows to each child in her care.

Gaining first-hand insight into the impacts of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) through fostering, Maria has worked to raise awareness of the condition by creating FASD Network, a support group made up of a cooperative of families affected by this disability all are advocating for awareness and change.
