Who are the Children and Young People who need Foster Carers?
Children and young people who need foster carers vary in age from babies to teenagers; they have a variety of needs. Children and young people can be in care for all sorts of reasons, their parents may have mental health problems or issues concerning drug and alcohol misuse.
There may be violence in the family and children could have been hurt or abused. Many of the children and young people have been through difficult and distressing experiences and may find it difficult to trust adults.
We particularly need foster carers who could look after teenagers or family groups of brothers and sisters.
