Looked After Children: Connor's Story

Could you foster a child like Connor?*

Connor, aged 11, currently lives with task-centred foster carers on a short-term placement, but would love to find a more long-term home.


Connor has dyspraxia, which means he finds coordination difficult. He is very able academically, but finds writing tricky. Making friends with other children is sometimes hard. He doesn’t like to join in playground games as he finds throwing or kicking a ball difficult.


Connor’s current foster carers are working with him on building his confidence up and have already seen really positive results, which his teachers have commented on.
