FOSTERing LOVE in LONDON

26 10 2016

dear friends,

what a beautiful morning it was to walk across the Millenium Bridge alongside such a warm and welcoming group of people, hearts held high and arms open wide to the children of the Calais Jungle. there is quite a lot of love in london indeed.

some have criticised the support being shown towards refugee children given the fact that there are currently 10s of thousands of British children in need of foster care too. but if we open our hearts to some, it means we are quite capable of opening our hearts to others.

who knows, maybe this is just the beginning of a new wave of foster caring across the UK.

over the last 13 months more than 10,000 members of the UK public expressed an interest in being foster carers for unaccompanied asylum seeking children. HOME for GOOD is a charity working in partnership with 12 local authorities around the country assessing and training foster carers to meet this need.

but the first step is to become a registered foster carer through your local council. here you can read about the variety of foster care schemes:

BIG LOVE from Philomena, Luna & Niki
