HEART GALLERY ARTWORK CREATED BY FOSTER CHILDREN WILL BE SHOWCASED

Barnardo’s Scotland Fostering North will be showcasing their heart gallery of artwork created by foster children from the region at Overgate, Dundee from 9.00am until 5.30pm tomorrow, Saturday 28th January 2017.

The display is part of Barnardo’s UK-wide fostering and adoption week, (23rd-29th January), where the leading children’s charity is appealing to people who are loving and supportive to consider fostering and adoption to make a difference to a child’s life. The showcase presents an opportunity to find out more about fostering with Barnardo’s Scotland. 

There is currently a shortage of foster carers across Scotland, with particular need for carers who can provide safe, stable homes for teenagers, children with challenging behaviours and sibling groups. 

Barnardo’s Scotland work with more than 26,500 children and young people in over 130 specialised community-based services across Scotland and has over 95 shops.  We believe in children and we believe every young person has a right to thrive. Our vision is to realise Thomas Barnardo’s dream of a world where no child is turned away from the help that they need. Our work includes: fostering and adoption services and support; helping children break free from sexual exploitation; supporting young carers; helping young people in to employment and helping children living in poverty.   

Last year 248,000 children, young people and families were supported by Barnardo’s through more than 996 services across the UK
