Calls for More Foster Carers in England

A fostering charity is calling on people across England to think about whether they could become foster carers.

According to the Fostering Network, 51,000 children live with 43,000 foster families in England each day, but fostering services need to recruit around a further 7,000 foster families in the next 12 months alone.

A recent YouGov poll found that across the UK, younger people, those over 55, single people and those with no children were less likely to think they could be accepted, but the Fostering Network wants to dispel these myths.

What is important, says the charity, is that foster carers have the right skills and qualities to look after children separated from their own families, who have often experienced abuse or neglect.

Minister for children and families, Edward Timpson, said:

"I hope that those who haven't considered fostering before, or those who have been thinking about offering a child a stable, loving home, will take this opportunity to put themselves forward, safe in the knowledge that it is not their age, sexuality, faith or gender that counts but the quality of their parenting."
