A new social media campaign has been launched to dispel some of the common myths about fostering, and encourage people in Stoke-on-Trent to come forward and help local children.
Nearly a thousand children are in care, the most the city has ever seen. Council bosses are currently working with around 300 fostering households, but many more are needed. They’re also calling for those with space in their home and their lives to consider fostering.
The campaign focuses on some of the most common myths, to show that anyone can come forward and make an incredibly positive difference to lives of local children.
