Superheroes not required, just you
HEDGEHOGS are a rare sight these but it seems that like buses, they sometimes arrive in threes!
This particular trio were enticed into reader Dorothy IN Hillingdon there are 335 children in care – enough to fill 13 classrooms.
These children are some of the most vulnerable in London. Tragically what they most need is the thing that many of us take for granted: a stable, loving childhood, where they can just be themselves.
Someone like you could make a huge difference to their lives. Foster carers don’t need to be super-heroes; they come from all walks of life.
When you decide to take the life-changing decision to foster, Barnardo’s will support you every step of the way so you don’t have to do it alone.
Barnardo’s celebrates its 150th anniversary this year.
The charity was one of the first to place children with families, and to train foster carers so they had the right skills to look after children.
