The last five years have seen a significant increase in the number of unaccompanied children leaving their homes and claiming asylum in the UK because of war, persecution, or lack of safety in their country of birth. Due to the ongoing crisis in Syria and violence in the Middle East and North Africa, the UK Government has been working with a number of organisations and agencies to welcome refugee children.
Home for Good has been privileged to be involved in some of these discussions, particularly around the increased need for foster carers who are ready to welcome an unaccompanied asylum seeking child into their home. Our vision is a home for every child who needs one in the UK, and we are encouraging people to respond by considering becoming foster carers. Since September 2015, we have seen 11,000 individuals register their interest, and we are now able to link those interested with local authorities and agencies across the country, as they begin to assess potential foster carers to meet this particular need.
Home for Good will continue to work with local and national Government as these schemes are further developed and rolled out, with the aim of finding as many foster carers as possible.
Dr Krish Kandiah, founder and director of Home for Good, urges us to consider our response to this crisis.
Home for Good is committed to doing everything possible to help every one of these children and young people get the love and care that they need. Could you help?
Register your interest and we will connect you with a local authority or agency when the process starts in your area.
