Help identify children in private fostering

A CAMPAIGN is launching in North Tyneside to help support children who are separated from their birth families through private fostering.

Many children in these situations will be well cared for but others may feel confused, isolated and sometimes even scared.

Your local council needs you to help them identify these children who could be in your community.

Private fostering is an arrangement that lasts for 28 days or more where a child is not cared for by a close relative.

While most private fostering carers do a good job, some do not.

Please help us keep children safe by notifying your local children’s services department if you think you know of a child being privately fostered.
