We established Penny Appeal Adoption and Fostering to increase the numbers of carers. We share the belief that the best way to support children in care is to ensure they have a safe, suitable and stable home life.


Our ultimate objective is to provide compassionate, nurturing and loving homes for vulnerable children and young people in care.

According to the Department for Education (DfE), there are approximately 70,000 children in care in the UK. Unfortunately, this figure has increased significantly over the last eight years. According to research commissioned by Penny Appeal with Coventry University it is estimated that over 4500 of these children are Muslim . Muslim children are also disproportionately represented amongst those categorised as Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC).

We will give you independent and impartial advice about becoming a foster carer or adopter. We can also help you to become approved by the best providers in your area by carrying out a telephone assessment and arranging visits to your home from up to three independent agencies and your local authority service. We do not have any affiliations with any providers and we are not a private agency so we do not get paid by the local authority (or any other providers). We rely on dua and donations to make this UK charitable programme successful and, insha'Allah, we always aim to do what is in the best interest of the applicants and the children who will be placed with them.
