North Lincolnshire Council has worked closely with local tourist attractions to offer discounted passes and entry to help fostering households make the most of the magical Christmas holidays with the children and young people they care for.

North Lincolnshire’s foster carers are valued members of the community of North Lincolnshire.

Our foster carers are supported by the council and our partners in a variety of ways and as part of this they will be able to enjoy discounts to a variety of venues over the holidays.

Foster families will be able to spend quality time together at the zoo, get their adrenaline pumping at a trampoline park, venture around a museum, and much more!

To find out more about the discounts available to foster carers, visit our website.

Cllr Julie Reed, cabinet member for children and families, said:

“With schools out and this week and the Christmas holidays upon us, we are excited to offer fostering households discounted entry and passes to a range of fantastic venues.

“We are passionately committed to ensuring all our children receive the best possible start in life and value each foster carer who helps make a life-changing impact.

“Christmas is such an important time for children, and a wonderful way for fostering households to connect, we hope these activities provide further opportunity to build confidence, discover new skills and build relationships.”

The council’s fostering team continues to work alongside partners and businesses throughout our communities to provide discounts and opportunities whilst raising awareness of the fantastic work foster carers do.

These discounts and passes can be enjoyed by the entire household all year round. The council’s website is updated regularly to provide further information and highlight new opportunities.
