I am sure that, like me, most of you will find it hard to believe that so many young people have to be sent miles away from familiar surroundings and friends because we don’t have enough of our own foster carers.
On average, there are around 430 looked-after children at any one time in Buckinghamshire – and yet we only have one foster carer per 1,000 households.
If you want to find out more, contact our First Step team for a chat. You won’t have to make a commitment until you are entirely satisfied fostering is right for you.

In the UK, there are around 3.8 million people who have diabetes. There are 3.2 million people living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and around 630,000 more who have Type 2 diabetes but don’t know they have it because they haven’t yet been diagnosed.
If not managed well, both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can lead to devastating complications. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people of working age in the UK and is a major cause of lower limb amputation, kidney failure and stroke.
People with diabetes in Buckinghamshire wanting to share their stories are invited to contact Diabetes UK. Send a brief summary of your experience with diabetes via email to south.east@ diabetes.org.uk.
