COMHAIRLE nan Eilean Siar is is­su­ing a call for more fos­ter fam­i­lies in the area, as Fos­ter Care Fort­night 2017 be­gins across the UK.

Ac­cord­ing to the Fos­ter­ing Net­work, the UK’s lead­ing fos­ter­ing char­ity which runs Fos­ter Care Fort­night, more than 7,000 more peo­ple with the right skills and ex­pe­ri­ence are needed to of­fer lov­ing, sta­ble and se­cure homes to chil­dren and young peo­ple across the UK.

Many fos­ter car­ers, who choose to fos­ter chil­dren in the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, say how well the fos­ter­ing team has sup­ported them to de­velop and evolve their cur­rent skill set in or­der for them to care for chil­dren who can­not live with their birth fam­ily.
