Charity calling for more foster carers

With the number of children coming into the care system rising, Barnardo’s is launching an urgent appeal for more foster carers.

As an ambassador for Barnardo’s I am desperate to help the charity find safe, loving homes for these children and 450 more foster carers are needed in the north east specifically.

Readers can contact Barnardo’s on (0191) 492 900 or visit for more information.
