Urgent call for foster carers
Hundreds of youngsters across Lanarkshire are desperately in need of loving foster homes, according to a children’s charity.
Barnardo’s Scotland are urging would-be carers to come forward for their Change A Life campaign.
The charity say 191 children in South Lanarkshire are waiting to find a loving home.
Michelle Strain, Barnardo’s Scotland manager, said:“Loving foster care is crucial to giving vulnerable children the happy home they desperately need and deserve. However, too many never experience this because there simply aren’t enough foster carers to go around. Single or in a couple, black or white, same sex or heterosexual, we are asking would-be carers across Lanarkshire to come forward and help change a child’s life.”
Barnardo’s Scotland meticulously match carers to children and provide them with specialist foster carer classes and close, on-going one-onone help.
