Barnardo’s Scotland is looking to recruit 850 foster carers in Scotland 2015 to help address a shortfall of 8,600 carers across the UK. The charity is asking members of the public to consider becoming foster carers and help create happy childhood memories for some of the most vulnerable children in the UK.
Currently a third of all children in foster care are moved between different families more than twice every year due to the lack of suitable foster carers. The number of children in the care system in the UK has risen for the 8th year in a row to more than 90,000.
Barnardo’s does not exclude anyone from consideration on the grounds of marital status, gender, sexual orientation, disability or employment status.
Fostering is a caring career and we would encourage those who feel they have a lot of love to give to get in touch.”
