Could you foster a refugee child? 69 unaccompanied children need homes here but there is only room for 5
Sixty nine unaccompanied asylum-seeking children need homes in Kirklees - but only five are set to be allowed to settle here.

According to the EU police agency Europol, more than 10,000 unaccompanied child refugees have disappeared in Europe in the last two years.
Across the UK there were 3,000 asylum applications from Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children in 2015, a 56% rise.
