Huddersfield Town Football Club and Kirklees Council have joined forces to urge local families to get involved in the vital area of foster care.

There are currently more than 450 children and young people from Kirklees in foster care. Over 150 are placed with foster families outside the area because the council doesn’t have enough local foster carers. Moving a child away from their school, their friends and family can be very distressing, and if it’s a short-term placement it can have a negative impact on schooling.

Huddersfield Town have pledged to support the council’s ongoing campaign to recruit more foster carers throughout the 2019/20 season. There will be many opportunities for fans to find out how they can get involved in making a difference to Kirklees children.
