Every day, children and young people enter the UK seeking asylum. Separated from their families, exhausted from their long journey and often speaking little or no English, it can be an extremely frightening and overwhelming experience.
We believe that giving these children a stable and secure foster home, is a more positive alternative to a residential unit while they apply for refugee status.
As a foster carer, you can give these children the safety they need to start adjusting to their new country, and begin to overcome an often traumatic past.
We’ll equip you with specialist training to help you support children seeking asylum. For example, you’ll receive information about current legislation and their legal status, an understanding of the experiences they may have had, and how you can meet their practical and emotional needs.
