Do you have Something Missing in your life? Could you foster a child?
Hertfordshire County Council’s fostering recruitment team has launched a powerful film this week highlighting the urgent need for more foster carers in the county.
Currently, there are approximately 900 children looked after by Hertfordshire County Council, 70 per cent of whom, at any one time, are in foster care. The majority of these children are over 10 years old.
To highlight the needs of these children and the transformation that foster parents can bring to their lives, the county council has created a moving film as part of its Something Missing Campaign.
The story follows the plight of a 12-year-old whose mum is unable to care for her, and is left feeling neglected, scared and needing help. It also tracks the lives of a couple who have the time, space and desire to welcome someone else in their lives.
Watch the film at: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/somethingmissing , where you can also find out more information about how to foster.
