Who We Are
Power of Parenting was established by Paul and Samantha Adams in 2016. Paul retired early from the Met Police and Samantha was able to find a little more time in her role as a career mother to our four children. We resolved to try to make a difference for local Looked After Children (Foster Children).
So with this in mind and with the support of all our own children, who were to play an active part in fostering, we trained to become Foster Carers for Bracknell Forest Council, becoming fully certified in 2012.
We genuinely feel that they have made a difference to several young lives. It is this that we find so fulfilling and rewarding. We want to spread the word in the hope that others may get involved and give their support. The result of greater support and more foster carers would make such a difference to so many young lives.
Almost eight years on, POP has achieved so much more than both he and Sam could ever have hoped. A much expanded board of Trustees has been brought together to grow the organisation and allow POP to take the next steps (see below).
