 MILTON KEYNES COUNCIL FOSTERING

Could you foster a young person or teenager in need of a safe and caring home? 

Have you been touched by the flight of children in Calais?  Would you like to be part of the solution for children and young people who have experienced neglect and abuse and who are in need of a safe and loving home?

Milton Keynes Council is keen to recruit people who can offer a safe and loving home for a child/young person in care.  We are especially seeking carers for teenagers and also have an increasing number of unaccompanied children who have travelled here from trouble spots throughout the world who are in need of homes.  As a Milton Keynes Council foster carer you will be provided with a generous allowance plus support and training.

If you feel you could provide the above or are interested in finding out about other fostering opportunities in Milton Keynes please contact:

NEWPORT PAGNELL HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Newport Pagnell Historical Society was founded in 1984 by a small group interested in the buildings and people of the town and surrounding area and concerned in preserving the past for the future. By the 1990's the thriving society, by its own fund raising efforts and with the generous help of the Harry Middleton Gift, was able to purchase and refurbish Chandos Hall and open it both as a Museum and the Society's headquarters. The Society currently has around 150 members who meet twice a month and is active in many aspects of the town and further afield including the preservation of historical buildings many of which have been sadly lost in the past.
