Parents & carers in Harrogate- Could you help a kid like Nathan & become a foster carer?
Nathan has been having a tough time at home – and its beginning to affect him at school, too.
He’s not sure where he is going to sleep tonight as this morning he had a huge row with his step-mum – and she told him to leave the house. He doesn’t know if she really meant it, but it keeps happening and his dad just isn’t there for him these days – or so it seems.
Nathan’s fed up with being seen as a problem, and sofa surfing at some older mates’ places or even sleeping on a park bench is looking like tonight’s best option for him. He’s done it a few times already and no one seemed to notice, although he thinks a friend’s mum might be getting in touch with social services.
So, here he is again, though its starting to get cold and dark already – but here’s where you could come in – and help us to help him get his life back on track, with the right support and help…
If you could offer a safe and welcoming home, on a short term or emergency basis, to a young person like Nathan, we’d love to hear from you!
