Investing in the future with Capstone Care Leavers Trust

Care doesn’t end at 18. We talk to Zoe from Capstone Care Leavers Trust about the work the Trust does and the incredible impact its grants can have for care experienced young adults. If you would like to know more, head on over to the Trust’s website 

Our Fostering Family Homes 

We asked our children to draw their fostering households, and we were not disappointed. When you foster, your house becomes so much more than a home; it is safety, security and a place to belong. Read alongside a gorgeous poem one of our children wrote for World Poetry Day. We think it’s the perfect way to celebrate Foster Care Fortnight.

Preparing Children for Ramadan 

Ramadan is an important time of year for the Muslim community, including children in care. Here our wonderful foster carer, Sid, talks about the meaning of the event and how to support children who want to celebrate this festival of unity and community.

What is your spare room?

In 2021 4.5 million people changed their job, and one in four people are currently considering their next move. Will you exchange one home-office for another? Or will your home-office become a safe space for a child in need of a loving home? If you've been thinking about fostering make your next move a life-changing one. Chat to us on 0800 012 4044

Foster care crisis

The number of children coming into care could reach 100,000 in the next few years, which means we need to find 25,000 more foster carers. However, the number of people coming forward to foster is slowing. It's getting critical.
