Hear one family's story
Mandy and Malcolm Ward are one of many families in Gloucestershire to have opened their homes and lives to children in need. They foster four children who are all siblings - no easy job - but one that means so immensely much to the children involved. For brothers and sisters, staying together during what are already potentially difficult times is an amazing chance that lots of foster children might not be lucky enough to have.
More families are desperately needed in the county, especially people who can take on sibling groups and older children like teenagers. Anyone can offer a foster home to a child in need.
