Barnardo’s Scotland’s appeal for people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to help out comes at the start of Foster Care Fortnight, which begins today.

Sue Brunton, Barnardo’s Scotland’s assistant director of family placement, said their search for foster carers does not stop despite the coronavirus crisis.
She said: “I have been blown away with the outstanding commitment our foster carers have shown to the children and young people in their care during these unprecedented times. Coronavirus has stopped many things but there is still a very real need to find loving foster families for children and young people.”
