Make a real difference to a young person's life
Why not think about fostering?
There are few examples in life where the actions of an individual can have such a positive and profound effect on another human being.
The relationship between a foster carer and a looked after child can mean that a severely abused and neglected child can grow up to enjoy a happy and fulfilling future.
Of course children who need foster care will all have had very different experiences and for many foster care is a solution to a short term need.

The things that children say about their foster carers:
