The 100 Homes Campaign

We were sent this video on behalf of the 100 Homes Campaign this week, it shares the experience of Rob and Jo, some recent foster carers who responded to the campaign.  

The united church in Nottingham has recruited 23 new foster homes in the last 3 years, with more on the way! Fostering Sunday this year is on 9th May and the campaign aims to highlight the need for more foster carers as we unite to meet this great need.
