JACK's look into the great work going on in Oxfordshire with fostering. Fostering is caring for a child in your own home when they are unable to stay with their own families. Foster carers are from all walks of life. Children need foster families for a variety of reasons, this may be due to a crisis in the family or concerns about a child. Many children needing a foster home have suffered from some form of abuse, including neglect. Fostering can be challenging but can also be very rewarding.

Across Australia, approximately 80,000 cats and kittens are killed each year. Some are only days old.
