The UK is facing a shortage of 9,000 foster carers this year as many people mistakenly believe they would not be allowed to foster children, a children's charity has said.
Action for Children wants to dispel the "myths" surrounding fostering in a bid to encourage more people to think about taking in a child.
The charity said 96% of those asked also did not know how many children are currently in care, which is around 91,000 in the UK.
