Finding homes for at-risk children in Nottinghamshire

50 new foster families for Nottinghamshire children


>

Home for Good is working with Nottinghamshire Council’s fostering team to find new foster carers for children across the county.

Nottinghamshire County Council have close to 950 children in care and are in need of at least 50 more foster families to care for vulnerable children in the county. Children sometimes need to be placed in residential care when this isn’t the best plan for them, because a suitable foster home is unavailable. We believe that, wherever possible, children should be cared for in a family and want to ensure this is always an option.

The pandemic has only increased the challenge. The pressure of lockdown on families has increased the prevalence of alcohol or substance misuse, domestic violence, and the challenge of mental health issues, meaning increased risk for vulnerable children. The impact of this will be felt in the lives of children entering care for years to come.

We believe that church communities across the county can make an incredible difference and we are asking Christians in Nottinghamshire to consider whether they could open their home to a vulnerable child through fostering.
