Any of us can make a difference

People from all walks of life can become foster carers. There are no special qualifications you need to have. It really could be any of us. Having patience, warmth and understanding for a young person experiencing a tough time in their life are all essential qualities for foster carers. If you have room in your home, and room in your life, then fostering could be for you. Could you be the person to make a difference?
