“It gives me a sense of security and belonging. Somewhere I can be completely myself and loved for who I am.” - Zoe, young person in foster care.
When young people cannot be cared for in their own homes, foster carers help them rebuild their lives, providing a caring, nurturing home and helping them towards a happy future.
