A children’s charity is calling for people across North Ayrshire to consider a rewarding role as a foster carer.

Charity Kibble provides a range of support services for children and young people with a history of trauma and/or neglect.

Their fostering service is seeking foster carers to provide safe, loving homes for children aged five plus – with 20 per cent of its current carers based in North Ayrshire.

People interested in fostering are being asked to put themselves forward regardless of age, gender, sexuality or race.

The charity is particularly keen to hear from potential ‘foster carers’ who could look after a young person as a dedicated, full-time, paid role.

All Kibble foster carers are given extensive training.

Neil McMillan, Head of Community Services at Kibble, said: “Fostering is an extremely rewarding role and whilst it can be challenging at times, the difference you can make to a young life is incredible”.
