We need foster carers from all of Newcastle's communities.
Our foster carers provide secure and loving homes for children and teenagers who can't live with their birth families. There are lots of reasons why children can't live with their families but the one thing these children and young people have in common is that they need care and support. Some of the children or young people who need foster care are from black and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds. To help them to go on to have a happy and fulfilling future, it's very important for them to have a foster carer that understands their culture and traditions. BAME foster carers can offer a wealth of support to children who may have been separated from, or have little contact with their own community.
