About Bedfordshire

Bedfordshire is a beautiful county with plenty for you to do with your foster children. For a fun day out and some fresh air, you can visit one of the many nature reserves in the area. Or, if you want to get up close and personal with some exotic animals, you could visit Woburn Safari Park. For younger foster children, you could visit Mead Open Farm where they can meet the farmyard animals. You can also have great fun visiting Oasis Beach Pool where your foster child can enjoy playing with the flumes, water cannons and more! 

There is a wide variety of activities to entertain you and your foster child, but whatever you choose to do you’re sure to feel fulfilled knowing that you are giving your foster child a better chance in life.
