Film of the week: Fostering a disabled child – a true story

“For the first time in a long time, Jenny and Tom found themselves with an empty nest. With so much more love and care still to give they decided to contact Scope’s fostering service. It was here they first heard about Grace.”

In this new animated film (voiced by British comedian, actress and writer Arabella Weir) to promote Scope’s fostering service, we take a look at the story of Grace, Jenny and Tom. Thanks to the flexibility, support and comprehensive training they received from Scope, they were able to offer Grace the help and encouragement she really needed to turn her life around.

Scope always want to hear from people who are interested in becoming a foster carer for a disabled child or young person. This is the first of two new animations we’re launching to attract new foster carers. We want more people to know about this service.

Check it out below – and let us know what you think!
