Why Do Children Need To Be Fostered

There are many reason why children need to be fostered. Generally it is because the local authority decides that the children’s birth parents are not capable, or should not look after the child.  However, it can also be because there is a family emergency that means a birth parent needs some extra help.

Each year about 30,000 children come into the care in the UK, most of these are placed in fostering.

If you think you could help a child in care, then why not think about fostering.
