Fostering, adopting and looked after children

Everyday heroes wanted

Here in North Lanarkshire there are children of all ages who cannot live with their family for a variety of reasons and need a stable and secure home. For some children this need is temporary and short term, but for others it is longer and in some cases permanent. At the moment we have a particular need to find more people willing to offer a permanent foster home to a child or sibling group.

You don't need to be superhuman to become a hero in the eyes of these children. It's all about the everyday things. More than anything you need to be there for them and care. There are children that urgently need your help right now. With our support team on hand to offer all the practical assistance and advice you might need and more and more children needing care every day, now's the time to act.
