Change a life... Foster
Fostering changes lives… both for those being fostered and foster carers.
People foster for a number of reasons but overwhelmingly it’s because they want to make a difference to a child’s life.
There are many children in Haringey who need foster carers.
Agreeing that a child shouldn’t live with their family is not always an easy or clear cut decision. Neither is the decision to become a foster carer.

To help us highlight the need for foster carers for teenagers we have produced this short awareness film which features foster carers and care leavers talking about their experiences in fostering. It not only presents the challenges and difficult situations that can be involved in foster care of children of all ages but also the happy experiences and the real difference you can make to a young life.
It was made as part of an ongoing project with the North London Fostering Consortium where Haringey works in conjunction with Barnet, Camden, Enfield and Islington.
Watch the film here and get first hand accounts of how by becoming a foster carer you can change a young life forever
