Home for Good, an adoption and fostering charity, began an appeal on Friday afternoon for people willing to foster unaccompanied asylum-seeking children coming to the UK. More than 9500 people have registered their willingness to help so far, interested in offering emergency, short or long term homes.
The charity will be coordinating all details awaiting responses from local authorities as the situation develops. Many more are expected to sign up today in light of Government announcements. This is a practical, tangible response, capturing the emotional reaction to the week's news.
Home for Good welcomes responses from people of all faiths and none who can offer practical help at this time of international crisis. The charity aims to make adoption and fostering a significant part of the life and ministry of the Church in the UK. More info here: http://www.homeforgood.org.uk/about-us
