Changing Lives

I have enormous admiration for people who open their hearts and their homes to become foster parents and help kids in need. Such a caring and kind act can transform young lives forever. A team from East Renfrewshire Council has been out and about this week setting up information stalls on the lookout for families who will take youngsters into their homes and offer them love, support and guidance. The team will also be answering questions about fostering on the council's twitter feed @EastRenCouncil at lunchtime on Wednesday,June10. I'm told a shortage of foster parents means some local children are being placed outside the area which is not ideal and the authority is desperately trying to make sure siblings can stay together.
