Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, is supporting the County Council Fostering team to recruit more Foster carers in our area. The campaign has proven successful, but there needs to be more focus now on recruiting foster carers for teenagers and those able to keep brothers and sisters together.
Stephen McPartland MP said, "Fostering is an amazing opportunity to change young lives by providing a loving family environment. I am really proud at the success of our campaign to recruit new foster carers locally last year. We are building on that by recruiting more foster carers for teenagers and to keep brothers and sisters together within a family.
"Very simply, foster carers need to have a spare bedroom available and can come from a variety of backgrounds, ages and professions. The common theme is that they all want to make a difference and have a passion for helping children & young people thrive. Please consider helping."
