    As LGBT+ History Month ends in Bradford, the council is backing a national campaign which encourages people from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to consider fostering.

    The LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week (5 – 11 March 2018) aims to inspire people into making a positive difference to local children and young people in need of a supportive, stable and loving home.

    The council says more LGBT foster carers are needed to provide safe and happy homes for children across the district particularly for children with complex health needs, brothers and sisters who need to live together and boys over 9-years-old.

    The Fostering Network estimates that fostering services in England need to recruit a further 5,900 foster families to bridge the shortfall for children currently in care. Bradford’s Fostering Service is aiming to recruit 35 new families over the next year.
