Foster Care

It is so important that the world has foster carers. In any give year, there are 69,000 children in the UK who are placed in foster care and need someone other than their parents to take care of them.

Read this story about the amazing work that foster carers do. This is Itiesha’s story, a 32 year old foster carer from Bristol, UK:

Young Minds

I feel so good today, because I’ve just made a donation to Young Minds to support young people who have mental health and their families. Experiencing depression and anxiety at the age of nine, I understand how vital it is that young people with mental health have the support they need.

By making my donation to such a worthy cause, I’ve just helped to save a young person’s life, helped to improve a young person’s quality of life or helped a parent to learn what treatment their child needs. Perhaps I could have assisted with all three.
In the UK there are 850,000 young people who have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. These young people deserve to be reassured, guided and supported and so do their families.

Young Minds, who I support, are a UK mental health charity who help with this process by:

  • Empowering young people

  • Providing a helpline for parents so they can get the right help and support for children and young people

  • Offering training and support for professionals who work with or/and come into contact with young people

  • Producing leaflets, newsletters and essential information on the topic of young mental health

  • Working towards changing attitudes of mental health and influencing policies

I understand, on a very deep level, how much young minds matter and so do young lives.
