Foster appeal as project expands

Antonia East describes some of the work of Family Breaks Devon

An appeal to recruit more foster carers for disabled children in Devon has been joined by two unitary councils.

Plymouth City Council and Torbay Council have joined the Family Breaks Devon project funded by Devon County Council.

The service, managed by the charity Action for Children, costs more than £700,000 a year to run.

Family Breaks Devon currently has 41 foster carers in the county, providing support for more than 70 children.
