It’s never too late to make a difference
Age and background should not put people off coming forward to do something life changing
With 88,000 children in care and the numbers of foster placements growing, there is a great need for foster carers.
This month, we are launching a fostering campaign focusing on how it's never too late to make a difference.
85% of our foster carers are 'more satisfied or much more satisfied' in their new role than in their previous career
One of our foster carers said about their career change:
'There can be nothing better than to turn a child's life about, and make them feel positive about themselves.'
Read about how Sue and Howard decided to change their career in their 50s after their children had left home.
91% of children said living with their foster carer had helped them
We, and our foster carers, really have had an impact on young people's lives.
One of our young people said:
'I have been able to focus my life in order and achieve things I never thought I could.'
Do you know somebody that could foster, or want to find out more?
