Shaqib Juneja - Head of Operations, My Foster Family

Shaqib Juneja

Our drive is to represent a BAME & Muslim voice within the adoption/fostering space in the UK. We promote adoption/fostering within the Muslim community to meet the present need (300+referrals to-date).

We educate adoption/fostering agencies/etc. around faith/cultural literacy (400+workers trained to-date). We support vulnerable families/children via Arise Learning with mentoring/family/mental health support (200+to-date).

Since the beginning of the pandemic we have vastly expanded the work we have been doing with vulnerable families/children. We have partnered up with Bradford Foundation Trust and Barnados and we have changed our work practices with a greater focus on vulnerable families in Bradford. Mentoring has moved online and we are adapting it for further anticipated changes.
