Foster Care Crisis: How You Could Make a Difference in 2022


Have you ever thought about becoming a foster parent? Right now, you are needed to give a child or children a warm and loving home in 2022.


You could provide a child with the right springboard to help them flourish for the rest of their lives.

Currently, in the UK there are 400,000 children in contact with Social Services and more than 80,000 of those are in care.

The number of foster parents is at an all-time low, and children are still coming into care. If you’ve ever thought about giving a child the gift of a new start, now is the time to take the first step and start your fostering journey.

Fostering gives an incredible opportunity to have a positive and long-lasting impression on a child's life. The placement might be for a short or long period of time, however, the meaningful impact you make will last for a lifetime.

Having previous caring experience is not a requirement for fostering, so if you have enjoyed a caring role previously, even as a parent or grandparent, or perhaps as a nurse, teacher or charity worker, then fostering can be a wonderful way to continue that work in providing a valuable life experience. Take our quick quiz to find out in minutes whether you could become a foster carer.

Fostering offers so much to both caregivers and children, and often it can flourish into a life-long relationship with the child or young person. If you’re wondering how you can make a difference in someone’s life, consider making 2022 the year that you give a person the comfort of a loving home.
