Charity in quest for foster carers
8:47am Tuesday 15th May 2012 in Fundraising fun
CHILDRENS’ charity Barnardo’s is looking to recruit foster carers in North and East Yorkshire.
Emer Byrne, a Barnardo’s foster carer for more than 20 years, has fostered 12 children. As part of Fostering Care Fortnight which is running from now until May 27, she is helping Barnardo’s appeal for more foster carers, particularly for the children who wait the longest for a family – siblings, disabled children and older children.
For an informal chat about fostering with the Barnardo’s Yorkshire fostering team, phone 0870 240 8342 or go to barnardos.org.uk/fostering
