How to help refugees

Looking at how to help refugees?  Well, there is a refugee crisis in the UK, with thousands fleeing war zones, including many children who travel alone.

One of the many ways you can help, is by becoming a foster carer, to look after an unaccompanied minor/refugee. As long as you have a spare room we’d love to hear from you.

It’s important to understand that the average unaccompanied minor is between 12 and 17, and usually male. If you are interested in fostering refugee children, we think this is fantastic. Don’t know where to start? Download our guide, which gives a great fantastic introduction to fostering, and answers some key questions that new foster carers often ask.

After you’ve read our guide, the next step is to talk to someone on our recruitment team. We can provide you with all the information you need to become a foster carer, as well as answering any questions you might have. Fostering is a big decision to make, we expect there will be many questions.

Finally, we wish you luck, as you embark on your fostering adventure. We are always happy to help, so don’t hesitate to give us a call.
