There are a number of reasons why children in Milton Keynes are placed in care; there may be a crisis in the family, ill health, relationship difficulties or bereavement. For some children they will have experienced abuse and need to be given the reassurance of a safe, understanding and supportive home.

Foster caring is extremely rewarding, allowing these children to live and develop within a family. Most children will be going through a difficult time and will rely on foster carers to help them gain a sense of confidence and security. We also do our best to keep brothers and sisters together where siblings need to be fostered and cared for.
