Growing up in foster care... Two young people share their experiences

Solomon and Sharmin were both brought up in foster care.

In this short video they share their thoughts on what growing up in foster care was like for them, and introduce us to the foster carers who loved and cared for them while they grew up.

Do you feel inspired by people who foster? Do you think you might be up to the challenge? Please get in touch with us today and we can chat about whether fostering is for you.
