Now Liam has somewhere to call home.

20 April 2012

As one of our payroll supporters, we know you share our belief that every child has the right to be part of a happy, loving family. It’s pretty much a given, right?

Sadly, many disabled children are missing out on being part of a family home because there aren’t enough foster carers to look after them. Instead, they’re being placed in residential homes and sometimes even hospices. This is why Scope Fostering is so important.

Take little Liam*, who has several learning difficulties and physical impairments. By the age of seven, he had never known a stable family life. His experience of being continuously moved around had left him feeling unwanted, confused and massively lacking in confidence.

Our Fostering service offers carers specialist training in techniques such as feeding, sleep problems, behaviours associated with conditions such as autism, and coping methods. This training increases their confidence and ability, fully preparing them to look after disabled children.

Thanks to Marie, one of Scope’s foster carers, Liam now has a loving family home and finally has the confidence to interact with other children and start making his own friends.

Thanks to the regular gifts from supporters like you, Scope is able to give more disabled children the loving homes they need.

Support the work of Scope with an ongoing donation from pay.
