Parents for Children

Here is a picture of a girl with her face painted as a cat. Parents for Children is a charity that specialises in finding loving, caring families for children with exceptional needs. We work throughout the UK to find permanent homes for children who have profound emotional, learning or physical disabilities. Without our help, many of these children would otherwise remain in residential care or face many disruptive moves.

We need your help

Here is a picture of some teddy bears at our 30th birthday celebrations. We are a small charity and we depend on your help to run our services. You can help us by a direct donation or by fundraising for us. We'd love to hear from you if you have fundraising ideas or if you would like to volunteer to help us.

If you would like to talk to us about offering a home to one of these children, please call us on 020 7520 2880.

Our foster carers

We currently have several foster carers with vacancies for children. If you are with a local authority you can review our current list here. If you would like to talk to us about placing a child with one of our carers, please call us on 020 7520 2881/5.

The drawings are by young artists, Danielle and Catherine, who were asked to draw their new families.
