Support offered to people interested in being foster carers

Fri, 20 May 2016


People on the Isle of Man are being urged to think about giving a child a home. 
 
Fostering First is supporting 'Foster Care Fortnight' with a range of events to give those interested more information. 
 
There are currently just over 50 carers on the Island - by the end of the year they hope to have another 10-15 placements of children into homes. 
 
The team will be in The Strand, Shoprite, Tesco and the Sea Terminal and is encouraging anyone with questions to discuss them in 'a relaxed environment'.
 
June Thomas has been fostering for 12 years after two brothers she knew of needed help - she tells us why she does it:
