Celebrity chef appointed ‘fostering ambassador’

TV chef Lorraine Pascale has been appointed the first ‘Fostering Ambassador’ by the Department for Education.

In a press release published today, the Department noted that the chef was fostered herself as a child and said she would bring “the same enthusiasm and dedication usually seen in the kitchen to supporting some of the country’s most vulnerable children.”

Pascale, 42, who has a West Indian background, will work to champion fostering in her new role, encouraging potential foster carers to provide a new home for needy children. She said she was “extremely honoured” by the appointment, adding:

“It’s a cause that’s extremely close to my heart.”

The appointment reflects Pascale’s previous energetic campaigning on behalf of foster children and their families.

Children’s Minister Edward Timpson said:

“As someone who grew up as part of a large foster family, I know only too well that fostering can be one of the most rewarding experiences life can bring.”

Pascale, a former model, is also a patron of fostering and adoption charity TACT – the Adolescent and Children’s Trust.
