There was a short presentation on Slough Foster Care at the Circuit meeting this week, and the need for foster carers in the 23-mile radius round Slough.
Children with many differing needs are taken into long- or short-term care, depending on their circumstances. They come from different ethnic backgrounds, and many have multiple problems. There are insufficient houses in Slough with a spare room. The presenters were asking for us, with our contacts in our communities, to spread the word, perhaps by displaying a banner outside. Church Councils to check whether they can help.
Foster carers have training and are supported and paid. The need is very urgent so if you do feel called to offer such a home and care for a child please see poster/leaflets at church.
