Bromley Council says 'search is on' for residents to foster youngsters in need
Bromley Council is calling for new foster carers to come forward to provide loving homes for youngsters who desperately need them.
The authority is searching for more people in the borough to take on children and teenagers who could benefit from a safe home, support, and help.
Residents over 21 with a spare room can benefit from a weekly rate of over £500, according to the council, while doing “something really important for local young people”.
Head of fostering Susan Noonan said: “Our foster carers come from all walks of life and do a very rewarding job.
“We are confident that there are many more people who have the skills to make a big difference to the life of a child or young person.
“We are calling for people to come forward and find out how to get involved in this very rewarding career”.
