Could you foster an unaccompanied child/young person who has arrived into Northern Ireland without their parents or responsible adult?

The Health and Social Care Trusts are seeking to recruit foster carers who enjoy being with, caring for and are able to support vulnerable children and young people from a range of ethnic, linguistic religious and cultural backgrounds.

The children come from a number of countries across Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia. Most of them are teenagers however some children are younger.

If you would like to find out more on how you could become a carer to an unaccompanied child or young person we would appreciate hearing from you.
