Foster Carer Stories

A revealing interview between a South East foster child and her carers won former ABC South East Open Producer Marcus Thompson a top media award.

At the SA Media Awards in Adelaide, Mr Thompson won in the Best Coverage of Youth Affairs category for his story Foster Carer’s Perspective.

Mr Thompson said it was an honour to win the category for a story he believed needed to be told. In the 5 minute video 16-year-old Anna* interviews her foster parents, taking the opportunity to ask them some probing questions.
