Foster carers look after children or young people who cannot live with their own families. This could be due to reasons that include illness, relationship breakdown or concerns about their welfare.
In March 2020, there were 57,380 children in England living with foster families. These families provide children and young people with a safe and nurturing family environment, caring for them as though they were their own children.
In Slough we have a fantastic team of foster carers but we always have a need for more!
Is this something that interests you?
Do you have space in your home and space in your heart to take in a child in need, either in the short-term or long-term?
