Make 2016 the year you foster

Published on: Tuesday, 05-January-2016

If you have what it takes to give a child love, support and stability at a time when their own family can’t, why not make 2016 the year you Foster for Knowsley?

Knowsley Council is always on the lookout for carers who are able to provide foster families for children and young people who need one.

If you have a big heart as well as the time and space to care for a child, Knowsley’s Fostering Service would love to hear from you.

There is no set criteria for who can become a foster carer – you don’t need to be married, own your own home or financially well off. In fact, foster carers receive an allowance for their work and receive regular training and support – so if you like the idea of working with children this could be the perfect career for you.

Most rewarding of all is seeing the difference you will make to a child’s life, putting a smile on their face and helping shape the person they will become.

If you are interested in finding out more, please call Knowsley’s Fostering Team for an informal chat on 0151 443 3958.
