Children In Need Of Homes

Over 200 children across the county are still in need of a foster home according to Nottinghamshire County Council.

Kate Foale is the vice-chairman of the Children and young People’s Committee said, “We raise the issues all over every particular media that we can think of. The thrust is particularly for children who are 11 and over and those in sibling groups.”

Councillor Foale added, “They are the ones that are the most difficult to place so we are looking for special foster carers that would be prepared to take that on.”

Latest figures from council reveal that there are over 600 children in foster care across Nottinghamshire.

People who are interested in becoming foster carers are invited to go along to any of three sessions at Hucknall Library on the 29th of September, West Bridgeford Library on October the 20th or Newark Library on November the 16th.

Christine and Steve Birchnall are foster carers to 15 year old Caren Callaghan who helped Team GB win gold for inline hockey at last year’s Junior Olympics, their service manager Naomi Sills said, “What better example of how the right foster home can help a young person on the road to success”.
