Fostering stories

Our foster carers come from all different backgrounds, single and married, gay and straight, different religions, ages, ethnicities and more. Some work while they foster, others foster full time and some already have children of their own. What they all have in common is the desire to make a difference in a child's life.

The 1500 children we look after also come from varying backgrounds and come into care for a range of reasons. Many have suffered neglect and abuse. The best way we can care for them is to find foster families where they will be safe, secure and happy.
