Londonist Out Loud: Finding A Foster Family In London

Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London.

Young people in London are fostered for many different reasons. The respite for their families can be all that's needed to get them back on a more stable footing. But it's not without its challenges. N Quentin Woolf meets Lisa Belletty from the Fostering Network charity, and its ambassador, Zion Zakari, who was fostered aged 15.
