Appeal for foster families

AN URGENT appeal has been issued for foster families in Scarborough after a charity revealed they’re expecting a huge shortfall of carers over the next 12 months.

The Fostering Network believe around 750 additional families need to be found in Yorks and Humberside in 2012, as fostering services struggle to find suitable housing for children.

To find out more about becoming a foster carer, contact your local fostering service, visit www.couldyoufoster.org.uk or call Fosterline on 0800 040 7675.
